Bavarian Blast
Event Description:
Come to New Ulm’s Biggest Festival of the Summer! Bavarian Blast, now in its 14th year, takes place July 18-21, 2019. A German & American Music Festival, it features all sorts of music on multiple stages, including German-style bands, old-time, rock and country music. Nationally-known musicians as well as local favorites take the stages all weekend long! Camping on-site. Kid’s activities (free admission for 16 and under Fri-Sun)! Free on-site parking. A few event highlights include the sauerkraut-eating contest, stein-holding competition, barrel rolling, dog races, a 5K/10K, Sunday morning Polka Service, Bavarian Blast Parade, souvenir and vendor sales, and more!

Plenty of food and drink options appeal to all tastes. What’s a German festival without German food?! Bratwurst, pork schnitzel, German potato salad, spätzle (with or without gravy), sauerkraut, apple strudel – is your mouth watering yet?! Bavarian Blast is a German-American Music Festival and you’ll be able to find both German and American food options to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Schell’s Beer will flow like the Minnesota River all weekend! Full bar available with local wines from Morgan Creek Vineyards and Doppeleichen Vineyards. And for the kids, locally brewed 1919 Root Beer on tap!

Plan some extra time to explore all that New Ulm has to offer! Schell’s Brewery, historic attractions, vineyards, museums, monuments, and more! Learn how “Germans Have More Fun” in New Ulm!
