New Braunfels Wurstfest 2021 is scheduled for November 5 through November 14 and is guaranteed to be loads of fun! Keep reading for a brief overview of this year’s festivities and tips for attending.
History of Wurstfest
In 1961, Ed Grist created a “Sausage Festival” to honor, you guessed it, sausage. The festival garnered worldwide publicity and was an immediate success. Sausage Festival quickly evolved into Wurst Week and finally Wurstfest. To this day, tens of thousands of visitors flock to New Braunfels to participate in the annual celebration of German culture that includes food, live music, dancing, Bavarian Style entertainment, carnival rides, games, and (of course) beer!
New Braunfels’ beloved beer and sausage celebration is held on the Wurstfest Grounds near the headwaters of the Comal River at 120 Landa Street in New Braunfels, TX.
