Typically held the first Thursday of December, Wassailfest New Braunfels began ten years ago as a festival to help residents and visitors get into the spirit of the holiday season. The original wassail tradition comes from a Medieval Christmastide English drinking ritual of hot mulled cider, juice or wine with sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year. The cider is usually served in wooden, pottery or tin bowls or mugs.  Want your own unique wassail mug(s) to take home? You’re in luck! There will finely crafted wassail mugs available for purchase at various merchants during the event.
