Celebrate the town's German roots with music and dance.
Fredericksburg, founded in 1846, known as "Fritztown" among older German residents, is home to "Texas German", a dialect spoken by the first generation of German settlers. With such a rich history of German influence, it's no wonder the weekend-long family-friendly celebration includes Oktubafest, the chicken dance and three days of live entertainment from yodeling to polka to accordion music.
Nearly 30 German dishes will be available and the beer selection will include both domestic and German beers.
Tickets are $8 for one day, $14 for two days and $18 for three days.
