Stelzenplatz Expansion


Our exciting Stelzenplatz expansion brings even more food, beers, shopping, and room to roam!

Wurstfest’s popularity grows every year, and along with this fame comes increased ticket sales. For years, fans have been clamoring for an expansion to the grounds. Well, the wait is over! In 2014, we unveiled the brand new Stelzenplatz, located along the Comal River just below the Stelzenhaus hall. It was a ringing success!

The biggest draw of this area is the addition of 15-20 vendor booths, selling all sorts of high-quality Bavarian merchandise, clothing, packaged food and other delights. A few vendors have also moved to Stelzenplatz from inside the Marktplatz, which gives shoppers there more elbow room to peruse food and merchandise.

Relax at a picnic table with friends while you enjoy a drink and great music.

A fifth music stage is located in the biergarten, offering another venue at which to enjoy one of the 40+ national and international live music acts which make Wurstfest so great. Music truly is the heartbeat of the festival. Visit the schedule to find your favorite band’s days and times.

The exciting Wurstfest carnival has expanded to the Stelzenplatz as well. Three-five additional rides spread the midway fun to this section of the festival. Ride tickets can be used in anywhere, and wristbands will work in the Stelzenplatz.

A fleet of four food trucks are a welcome addition to our festival fare. These mobile vendors sell a wide variety of unique, and fun, festival foods. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that these additional vendors won’t be duplicating food that’s available elsewhere on the grounds – your perennial favorites are always available in the Marktplatz as well.

See views of the beautiful Comal River and its waterfall from a bridge and overlook area. Wie romantisch!

This expanded area has a little something for everyone. We can’t wait to see you there!
