Germanfest in Muenster Texas


Wilkommen (Welcome) to the 42nd annual Germanfest, sponsored by the Muenster Chamber of Commerce.

Muenster was founded in 1889 by people of German heritage and Catholic faith. This unique German community located in North Texas, of approximately 1,500, is a close-knit family in both kinship and kindred spirit.
This family, of common heritage and faith, throws one of the biggest parties in Texas, Germanfest, the last full weekend in April. This three-day festival attracts thousands to mouthwatering German sausage, scrumptious apple strudel, hearty cheeses and homemade bread, cakes, German beers, and pies. So, come to Muenster and let us be your host for food, fun and frolic. Be sure to bring a "guten apetit."

The charming town of Muenster, population 1800, swells to over 50,000 people a day, in welcoming our neighbors to the North, South, East & West! 

 Plan to participate in one or more of our exciting activities. Events include a 5k and 15k Germanfest Fun Run, a Metric Century Bicycle Rally, a Sausage and Rib Cook-Off, Nagelshlaugen and other assorted competitions.

 There will be entertainment for the whole family, including mimes, magicians, clowns and storytellers, or the Karneval and Kinder Theater for the children, while Mom and Dad delight in dancing, music, arts and crafts, a rock-climbing wall, folk dancing, and two stages with non-stop entertainment.

Located on U.S. Highway 82, 14 miles west of I-35, about 70 miles north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Muenster is waiting to welcome you to their community and entertain you at Germanfest.
