Come and enjoy the family-friendly ambience – Gemütlichkeit – of this unique music/street festival with three stages of live music and an open-air market along with antique shops in the old town area. On Friday, June 4th from 6:00 PM until 10:00 PM shop street vendors and enjoy various performances. Saturday, June 5th from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM begins with the parade at 11 AM, followed by our famous“tapping of the keg” and Willkommen ceremony for German exchange students and their Tomball host families, and official opening by the Mayor of Tomball, Gretchen Fagan.

An estimated 163 unique and interesting street vendors will line Market and S. Walnut Streets, selling German Heritage items, arts and crafts, and much more. Visit the “Weihnachtshaus” inside the Community Center at 221 Market Street at the corner of Cherry Street which will be filled with German clothes and souvenirs for sell.

You do not have to be German to enjoy this festival! Beginning with one Oompah band on a flat-bed trailer sixteen years ago the festival has become an annual tradition in Tomball and one of the best music/street festivals in Texas. Every year, on the very last weekend in March, festival-goers break out their Lederhosen and Dirndls “Go German” for the area’s largest festival celebrating the heritage of the original German families that settled this area beginning in 1840. In other words, in the case of German heritage there is much to celebrate in this part of Texas!

The  Tomball German Heritage Festival is held twice a year, located on the old downtown streets of Tomball, TX near 201 S. Elm St., Main St. (FM 2920) and Market St. It is a music/street festival celebrating German and ethnic heritage with 4 stages of live music performances “happy music for happy people”, special contests, ethnic and festival food, beer, wine, street vendors, all kinds of German souvenirs and clothing, arts, crafts, antiques, Heritage Center, carnival, pony ride, petting zoo, strolling music makers, street performers, and much, more.  Admission, parking and shuttle are FREE!
