Are you ready for New Braunfels Wurstfest 2021 2022? It’s back – bigger and better than ever!

Good News! It’s time to get out your alpine hat from years past as New Braunfels’ unique annual celebration is back – it’s Wurstfest 2022 next month!

2022 New Braunfels Wurstfest!

Every chance I get to road trip to New Braunfels —I take it. I love visiting this part of the Texas Hill Country to soak up some German heritage, local events, downtown New Braunfels, and the Guadalupe River. Whether you want to party or have strong German roots, get ready for a good polka, cold beer, and food that ends with –wurst! 

Grosse Opa will be there to make sure you have a good time. Just look for the man with the big feather in his hat! And, you might even learn a German word or two!

Dust off your dancing shoes because Wurstfest is returning for 2022, and you’ll want to look good in your dirndl or lederhosen while doing the chicken dance. Oh yes, it’s a must! This year look for special events and Texas fun at the all-new Marktplatz! They’re bringing back the pork chops on a stick, people! The first Friday in November will start a busy time for New Braunfels and a time to remember. So makes plans to be a part of it all!

  1. Excited to get back into the Polka of it all again this year! And I have the outfit for it (finally)! This article was super helpful and informative! I would take my fun-loving, chicken-dancing, pretzel-devouring, beer-drinking, lederhosen-watching Gal Pals!

  2. Just moved here a few months ago and I hear Wurst fest was awesome! I tried to make a joke but jokes about German sausages are the wurst!
