Cooler temperatures set the stage for great fall festivals in the Texas Hill Country. Fredericksburg, Texas is home to more than 350 festivals and special events each year, but here are four festivals you won’t want to miss this fall.

Oktoberfest will bring three days of oompah music, German eats and drinks, Texas wine and tons of fun to downtown Fredericksburg. Insider Tip: Oktoberfest is a hoppin’ festival (and we’re not just talking about the Bier!) If you’re looking for smaller crowds plan on visiting Friday evening or Sunday.
