| July 10, 2009

The Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce invites everyone to help celebrate the town’s German heritage and Texas hospitality during Night in Old Fredericksburg, coming July 17 and 18, to Marktplatz in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas. This year will mark the festival’s 46th anniversary.

Night in Old Fredericksburg is actually two nights and two days, showcasing the history, culture, food and fun of this charming Hill Country community. Organizers have put together a weekend event guaranteed to stimulate all the senses and to delight folks of all ages.

Revelers can listen and dance to nine different bands playing polka, show tunes and country from the comfort of two covered stages. Acts include the world-famous Sauerkrauts, plus the popular Seven Dutchmen, Jodie Mikula Orchestra, The Texas Legacy Czech Band, the Dujka Brothers, the Shiner Hobo Band, Cactus Country, Fritz Hodde, Sound Connection and Cactus Country as well as Almost Patsy Cline.

Night in Old Fredericksburg serves up a multicultural menu of tasty food and refreshing drinks. German favorites include sauerkraut and wurst served sizzling from the grill. Fans of Mexican food can sink their teeth into fajitas and tacos, and hungry visits will find enthusiastic cooks serving up delicious burgers, fries, turkey legs and other festival favorites.

Fredericksburg knows its beer, so once again volunteers will be pouring more than 15 domestic and imported beers, straight from frosty taps.

Night in Old Fredericksburg offers fun for every member of the family. Kids are sure to flock to their own special area where they can climb a rock wall, jump on inflatables, and test their skill at a variety of challenging games.
