Gruene Music & Wine Festival (New Braunfels, TX)

  • The event continues to grow each year. In recent years, we have been able to expand the Saturday wine tasting to include over 40 wine & food producers for tastings and ‘Le Cordon Gruene’ food trucks. To further enhance Sunday’s event, we added a Craft Beer Tasting, a second stage and the big game on a big screen TV.

  • Since 1989, Johnson City, the "Twinkliest Town in the Hill Country," has transformed from a quaint hill country town into a sparkling Christmas wonderland. Originally, the festival served as a fundraiser for local clubs and organizations. Over the years, the festival has morphed into an event enjoyed by families from across the United States and beyond.

Christkindlmarkt (New Braunfels, TX)

  • This free, three-day, outdoor event was created as a gift to one local woman’s German immigrant husband, and to bring to New Braunfels a sense of community.
  • But don’t let the newness of the Christkindlmarkt fool you; within its second year, this FREE community event boasted over 50,000+ guests.
  • Christkindlmarkt is an experience that we hope will become a long-lasting tradition not only for the residents of New Braunfels but also for the residents from its many surrounding communities.
  • Visitors of this market enjoy wonderful German and American foods, drinks, beer, handcrafted Glühwein and locally handcrafted items from open-air stalls and accompanied by the sounds of Christmas music, German music, children and adult choirs and German adult and children dancing groups.
