German food, Oompah music, Polka dances, German heritage and the very famous German Sausages are
celebrated each year in October across our great state of Texas. Peoples from around the world come to enjoy the fun and family festivities at the different locations for Octoberfest. Polka bands come from Germany just to compete and play at New Braunfels WurstFest every year.


. German sausage is world renown and in the US alone for all sausages consumed we average 6 BILLION POUNDS of sausage a year. Dinner sausage sales account alone for $1.89 BILLION DOLLARS a year in sales. WOW! Talk about an industry!! I love sausage and love to make it  but I had no idea there was so much sausage consumed in the USA every year.
