Are you ready for New Braunfels Wurstfest 2021? 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 2021 time next month! My family enjoyed being part of the Wurstfest preview celebration in September in New Braunfels. This information comes to you from the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitors Bureau and Wurstfest Non-profit Organization. All opinions here are my own.
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 of course, 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!
Beer Stein, Polka Music, Ferris Wheel, Dirndls – Oh My!
Dust off your dancing shoes because you’re going to 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!

Purchase A Wurstfest Brick
Wurstfest Association is proud to sponsor the “Help Pave The Way” brick sales fundraiser. Buy a brick and be a part of history!
After the devasting fire in 2019 that destroyed the Marktplatz, the rebuild costs and the cancelation of Wurstfel 2020 due to Covid-19 have put a significant hardship on the Wurstfest organization, as you can imagine. However, the festival association has come up with a way to offset the construction cost and last year’s cancelation and celebrate the New Braunfels community and festival activists – the “Help Pave The Way” was born.
The Help Pave The Way fundraiser invites people worldwide to become part of Wurstfest history by purchasing a personalized brick that will become part of the main Marktplatz walkway. They have already started seeing results from wonderful givers all over the world. For more information and to buy a brick, please go to Wurstfest – Brick Donor.
