Boerne Berges Fest


Mission and Vision

Attracting people from all over Texas, Berges Fest boasts music from one of Texas's best German folk bands, as well as the Berges Fest Parade, dachshund races, carnival rides for people of all ages, and much, much more!


It doesn't have to be October for people to gather and celebrate German culture in America. Berges Fest proves that! The 3-day, family-friendly festival centers around the German heritage of the Boerne area and commandeers Boerne's Main Street on Father's Day weekend for an old fashioned community parade and then continues with the "Festival in the Hills" at Herff Park/Kendall County Fairgrounds. The Berges Fest is one of the City of Boerne's biggest festivals.

What's more, general admission for Berges Fest is FREE general admission and everyone is invited to attend. Make plans now to bring friends and family for an unforgettable weekend of fun in the beautiful Texas Hill Country at Berges Fest!

The Berges Fest always needs various items to put on the festival and often times many of these items or the money necessary to purchase these items is donated by companies, past members or members of the community. Whether it be decorations or water the Berges Fest is always grateful for anything the community is able to contribute to continue the tradition that has become the Berges Fest.

If you would like to inquire about donating items please go to our Donate menu on our website.
