HOW WURSTFEST STARTED

The Wursfest New Braunfels festival has had unique and long history. It started as the Sausage Festival in 1961, created by the local city meat inspector, Ed Grist and drew a crowd of 2,000 visitors to sample the delectable sausages.  A few years later the event became a week-long celebration known as Wurst Week and soon after was dubbed Wursfest. Since 1967 the event has been held at Landa Park with the Wurstfest Grounds tripling in size in 1978 and continuing to grow to this day. This year marks the 58th anniversary of the festival.
