Exciting new upgrades!  The stage near the corner of Pine and Market is now under a big tent!  The area is called Grady Und Sandra Platz, in honor of Grady and Sandra Martin, who founded the German festivals in Tomball. 

The stage on the meadow at the corner of Market and Walnut is now called the Warsteiner / Ziegenbock Wiesn, and will include interactive fun, like sing alongs, folk dance lessons, balloon animal lessons, games and contests.  Music will continue to be a mix of traditional German, Bluegrass and American folk music.
