WURSTFEST - It's the WURST time of the year!

November 5-14, 2021

Wurstfest is back for its wurst year yet – join us in celebration of its return and 60th year! 

After a devastating fire destroyed the iconic Marktplatz and damaged the historic Wursthalle in 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic put big plans on hold in 2020, Wurstfest is back and better than ever. The new open-air Marktplatz, where dozens of nonprofit food and souvenir vendors sell their goods during Wurstfest, is ready to welcome back visitors for 10 days of gemütlichkeit – friendliness and good cheer!

Join us, In New Braunfels, for our annual Texas-sized Oktoberfest! The celebration, which began in 1961 as a "salute to sausage", showcases the best in Alpine and Bavarian-style entertainment, food, music, dancing, carnival rides, and games. And of course, there's PLENTY of beer and sausage to go around!
