“Lebe Hoch!” Schuetzenfest in Gillespie County Exhibit at the Vereins Kirche

Jul 02 2018 to Jul 31 2018

Schuetzenfest is an annual event that is a traditional German shooting competition.  Every year, the shooting clubs of Gillespie County compete to see if one of their own will be crowned “Schuetzenkoenig” or “King of Marksmen” who is cheered (“Lebe Hoch!”) and reigns until the next year’s competition. This exhibit will include photos of Schuetzenfesten of the past.  It will also provide a brief history of the event and the significance it has in Gillespie County.

Free for viewing during regular museum hours of 10 am to 4:30 pm Monday – Saturday.
