Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest
Oct 25 @ 2:35 PM – 3:35 PM

One of the best ways to learn about Texas food and wine is to immerse oneself in it. That is one of the goals of the annual Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest, celebrating its 23rd Anniversary Saturday, October 25, 2013.

Culinary tourism continues to grow in popularity, and our fest offers a great “one-stop” experience. The Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest features the best of Texas wines, food, and entertainment. Texas Specialty booths and Texas wineries vie for attention from discriminating gourmets and oenophiles, as well as novice “foodies”. All fest activities are located on Fredericksburg’s beautiful downtown MarktPlatz (Market Square).

Up to 25 Texas wineries will be on hand pouring over 100 types of wine. Guests will also have an opportunity to visit with some of the wine makers. A wide variety of Texas made products will be available for sampling and purchase as well. Look for lavender products, salsas, jams and jellies, seasons and spices, nuts, olive oils, beef, and hand painted glasses, among many other selections.

Our ever-popular Grape Expectations Cooking School, Saturday starts at noon, showcasing Texas chefs. Some of the Texas chefs participating this year include Ross Burtwell of Cabernet Grill, Fredericksburg; Lois Rodriguez of Texas Highways, Austin; and Chef Shawn Cirkiel of Austin. There will be two sessions featuring three chefs each. Seating is limited to the first 150 persons and is $10 per session or both sessions for $20.

Lively entertainment will include music by great Texas artists El Tule, Spare Parts, Sons of Father and Josh Dodds, all day long. Our annual poster series will feature artwork by a local artist, who will be on hand for poster signings at the Fest. This original painting, as well as a signed and framed poster, will be featured in the silent auction.

Organizers are also planning Special Events to enhance the experience of this year’s fest. These special events have limited seating with tickets being sold in advance only.

The Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest begins accepting guests at noon Saturday and continues until 7:00 p.m. General admission is $20 for adults, $5 for those under 21, and free for children under 12. The $20 admission includes one souvenir fest glass, 6 sampling tickets (which can be used for three 2 oz. sample pours or one glass of wine), Texas specialty booths, Texas wineries, a silent auction, entertainment, food court and the Great Gargantuan Grape Toss. Be sure to visit our food village offering an array of food to purchase. When your sampling tickets are gone we do have a ticket booth to buy more.

Sponsors of the Fredericksburg Food & Wine Fest include the City of Fredericksburg, Security State Bank & Trust, Opa’s Smoked Meats, Fischer & Wieser, and HEB.

More information on the event, and advance ticket purchase, is available by contacting the Fest Office at 830-997-8515, or by visiting www.fbgfoodandwinefest.com. Proceeds from the Fest go toward the continued beautification and upkeep of Marktplatz.
