2013 Tomball German Heritage Festival

2013 Tomball German Heritage Festival

Willkommen Y’All! It’s a Texas German celebration on the old downtown streets of Tomball, Texas.

The festival has become an annual tradition in Tomball and one of the best music/street festivals in Texas. Every year at the end of March, patrons break out their Lederhosen and Dirndls and "Go German" for the area's largest festival celebrating the heritage of the original German families that settled here around 1840. In other words, in the case of German heritage, there is much to celebrate! But the best part? You don’t have to be German to enjoy the festivities!

Come and discover fun for the whole family. With four stages of live music entertainment, street vendors, antique shops in the old town area, and games and rides for the kids, this event is sure to please.
