Wein & Saengerfest
The City of New Braunfels is excited to announce that the popular annual fundraising event known as Wein and Saengerfest will return to the streets of downtown New Braunfels this year, albeit with some changes and modifications due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Retitled “Wein and Saenger Lite,” this year’s event is set for May 1st, 2021, from 5pm to 9pm, on the Main Plaza. As in years past, the event is a fundraiser for the New Braunfels Downtown Association and the New Braunfels Parks Foundation. Wein and Saenger Lite will feature live music from Soul Sessions and Three Man Front, wine and beer will be sold by the glass, and there will be a limited number of food trucks available.
“We are excited to see the return of the Wein and Saengerfest event this year. As always, the health and safety of our residents and visitors is the top priority, so this year’s event has been modified to incorporate COVID-19 safety protocols,” said New Braunfels Mayor Rusty Brockman. “New Braunfels has proven time and again to be a resilient community – through flood, fire, and now pandemic – and we hope this year’s Wein and Saenger Lite fundraising event is just the start of returning to the traditions and festivities our community is known for.”
The event will require the closure of the Main Plaza, and the portions of Seguin Avenue and San Antonio Street approaching the Plaza. Those closures will be in effect the day of the event (May 1st, 2021) from 3pm until midnight, with a temporary tow-away/no parking zone within the closure from 2pm until midnight.
