Oktoberfest has been celebrated in Germany since 1810. Munich has been doing it up right for many years with a 16-day festival full of traditional food, entertainment and – of course – beer.
Today, Oktoberfest is celebrated all over the world, including the German community of beautiful Fredericksburg, TX.
Oktoberfest Fredericksburg begins tonight and runs through Sunday evening. Here’s what you’ll find during this full and active weekend in Texas Hill Country:
- German music across three stages
- Traditional food
- German bier tent
- Oktoberfest vineyard
- Domino tournament this Sunday
- Arts and crafts
- Kinder Park fun area for children
- Chicken Dance around the Square tomorrow morning (listen to our episode to learn more – you don’t want to miss this fun)
If you’ve never been down to Fredericksburg, it’s a little more than an hour and a half west of Austin, using 290W. And it’s a lovely drive!
Tickets are $6.00 for adults and $1.00 for children ages 6-12. Children 6 and under are free.
There are also special passes if you want to attend Oktoberfest Fredericksburg on more than one day. Two-day passes are $10.00/person and three-day passes are $15.00/person.
You can purchase tickets at the gate at any time, starting at noon today and running through the weekend.
If you have any questions at all, you can call 830.997.4810.
This is our event pick of the weekend and we really hope you’ll make it out with your friends and family.
