Wurstfest steps back in time…

Wurstfest was proud to be the Title Sponsor of Folkfest 2017! This annual festival celebrates New Braunfels’ unique history and heritage from a pioneer perspective, making for a family-friendly educational weekend experience! The lush 11-acre grounds of The Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture are home to this unique cultural celebration.

Every year, Folkfest visitors learn about the life and times of a 19th-century New Braunfelser with seminars, exhibits, and reenactments, while enjoying joys such as live entertainment, delicious food, craft beer, wine, and shopping from local vendors. All the things that make modern New Braunfels great! The kid-friendly, hands-on activities ensure that it’s fun for the whole family.

As the event’s first-ever Title Sponsor, the Wurstfest Association donated $10,000 to help promote the important historical and cultural education provided by FolkFest. The funds were used for planning and marketing and helped the 2017 event be the largest ever!
