Join us for Weihnachtsfest, as we partner with the National Ranching Heritage Center to host a pre-candlelight party on Friday, December 8th from 6:00 -7:30 PM

Location: 601 Indiana Avenue

With many of its traditions influencing the modern North American iteration of Christmas, Weihnachtsfest is a Winter celebration throughout German-speaking Europe.

During our family-friendly celebration of Weihnachtsfest, children and adults can create a handmade Christmas tree snowflake and decorate gingerbread cookies. Entering the celebration, our guests will be immersed in an authentic German market with smells of pine trees, freshly grilled bratwurst, and homemade hot apple cider. Music will be provided by the TTU Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble and will include traditional German Christmas music. Our Weihnachtsfest celebration is in partnership with the National Ranching Heritage Center's Candlelight celebration.
