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!
