What Is It? Texas has a strong German influence, from German towns to German restaurants. Therefore, it is no surprise that a number of great Oktoberfests occur during fall in the Lone Star State.
Why Do It? These festivals typically focus on great beer, good sausage and Texans adorned in German fashion.
Good to Know: An iconic Oktoberfest that has been occurring for over 40 years is Wurstfest in the German town of New Braunfels. It’s a great festival to dance to polka music, eat strudel and sausage, and, of course, enjoy a dark German brew.
