The 31st Annual Gruene Music & Wine Festival will be taking place for four days from October 5-8, 2017, in the Gruene Historic District, in New Braunfels, Texas.
Gruene Hall, Texas’ Oldest Dance Hall, and KNBT 92.1 FM Radio New Braunfels will be presenting the music and wine festival, highlighting the best in Texas wine, food, and music. All proceeds from the event will benefit the United Way of Comal County. Last year, the event raised over $140,000 for the organization.
The 31st Annual Gruene Music & Wine Festival is an annual gathering of the best wine, music, and food Texas has to offer. The four day festival offers attendees the opportunity to try the best Texas-sourced wines, all in one place. The festival averages over 90 different Texas wines to try from over 30 different Texas wineries, and guests can simply move from one booth to another to find their favorite, instead of driving all over the state.
Besides wine, there will also be craft beer tasting, delicious food, and a craft and gift market. In addition, both Gruene Hall and The Grapevine provide stages for great Texas music throughout the weekend. This year there are great country artists such as Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel, and Jack Ingram.
