Beyond the traditional Wassailstops, this year’s event will feature non-profit food vendors, shopping specials and extended hours at downtown businesses, and a variety of entertainment and activities. The Main Plaza bandstand will feature several local singing groups offering up holiday melodies for those attending Wassailfest 2021. Here’s the lineup:

 “Wassailfest is an iconic local event that brings the community together to celebrate the holiday season in our beautiful and historic downtown,” said New Braunfels Mayor Rusty Brockman. “Just like a good cup of Wassail, the community spirit of gathering together and helping local non-profit agencies warms the soul, and we hope residents and visitors find their way downtown for this festive event.”

Several street closures around downtown Main Plaza will affect driving routes throughout the day. East San Antonio St. from Comal Ave. to Union St. will be closed beginning at 10am. At 4pm, several other road closures will begin, including:

  • All of Main Plaza
