Buda Beer and Polka Festival

There is a new event coming to Buda, Texas, or more accurately, coming back. The Buda Beer and Polka Fest will take place at Buda City Park on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, 2016. The last time Buda saw this festival was in 2011 and we are excited to see it return.

This event takes place between two popular German beer festivals in the central Texas region, so we are proposing a German Beerfest Fanatics Trail with these three stops this fall festival season.

1.               1. Oktoberfest – Fredericksburg, Texas
       September 30 – October 2, 2016

2.               2. Buda Beer and Polka Fest – Buda, Texas
        October 22 – 23

3.               3. Wurstfest – New Braunfels, Texas
        November 4 – 13



The Buda Beer and Polka Fest showcases Texas accordion music from different genres, including Polka, Conjunto, Tex-Mex, Czech and Zydeco, so you are sure to hear something that will make you want to half-step and hop. The headliner for this event is the Texas Tornados. You know them for this Texas classic: 



What goes great with accordion music? Beer! There will be a large variety of local craft beers, as well as, Texas favorites on sale to wash down all the food from the international food court. The food court will cook-up many of our festival favorites that range from German to Mexican and Cajun to Texas-style.

The website also says that there will be rides for kids, games, contests and a washer tournament. There are still more details to come, like a full music line-up and more activity details, so go check out the Roadway Productions webpage for this event.
