    Wurstfest is WONDERFUL! A big group of us go every year for the food, the music and the fellowship! And we stay within walking distance, so the return trip to the condo is always as entertaining as the festivities in the park!

    I used to attend Octoberfests back in the 70’s when they supported volunteer fire depts in rural New England. The fun, commaraderie and great German Food and dance was a joy to be a part of.

    I haven’t been to a German Fest since I left the East Coast back in the early 80’s. It would be nice to check this one out as i pass by New braunfels everytime I go to San Antonio and back monthly/

  53. Jason Reply

    By far one of the funnest events to visit New Braunfels for. Come hungry and thirsty! We are looking forward to the pork-chop on a stick and the various kinds of German sausage on a stick.

  57. Katie Osborne Reply

    Heaven on a stick, fried pickles, potato soup and the chicken dance!!

  58. Birgit Reply

    Iโ€™m native German and was surprised how close the Wurstfest is to Germanyโ€™s Oktoberfest (considering other Oktoberfests in the United States Iโ€™ve been to). I liked the German food and the beer although the beer was too expensive. I also liked the German band although they took very long breaks (Wurstfest 2 years ago).

  59. Jan Waggoner Reply

    we have some German friends who plan to meet us in New Braunfels so we can meet their new adopted 12 year old daughter. What better way to celebrate than to attend a festival celebrating the family heritage! Plus the beer will be delicious (but we will get root beer for the young one!)

    I have been in San Antonio for 2 years, This will be my first time going.
