The famous Partyhalle has transitioned to an open-air tent with over 30,000 square feet of covered fun, a large dance floor, and great views of the elevated stage. Also new for 2021, the Kleinhalle offers unique beverages from Paulaner (the same bier served at the original Bavarian festival) and Cupcake Vineyards, live entertainment, and a special menu in air-conditioned bliss! Guests ages 21+ are encouraged to compete in various bier games throughout the weekend, while all ages can find something special in the Marktplatz or at the Festival Merch tent.

Fort Worth:


The Herd Twice Daily, 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Texas Longhorn and the American cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the Old West. They're a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown." And they formed the core of the great cattle drives of the late nineteenth century. Now, the romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives returns to Fort Worth with The Herd - Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands - offering an unforgettable glimpse into the past. You'll hear the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling, and the rhythm of the hoof beats. As The Herd passes, a bygone era comes to life before your eyes. The world's only twice-daily cattle drive happens at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily in the Stockyards National Historic District, 130 E. Exchange Ave. in Fort Worth. Look for the Drovers before and after each cattle drive for photo opportunities and to learn more about life on the trail! Note: drives are not held on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day. Information: www.fortworth.com.

Sundance Square offers the widest range of entertainment options in Fort Worth. Live music, live theatre, and improv comedy. World-class shows and performances. Museums and art galleries.

Mulberry St. Information: dentonmarket.org.

Discover Denton's historic Courthouse-on-the-Square, built in 1896, making the building at the center of a town more than 100 years old! The building itself is beautiful with architectural details that make the courthouse shine as an icon for Denton County. The best part about the Courthouse-on-the-Square is that everything in Denton seems to revolve around it. With something going on every day on the Square, there is no such thing as a dull day in downtown Denton. Whether you're looking for a place to listen to live music, grab a drink, or even an old-fashioned ice cream sundae, you only have to walk a few steps from the Courthouse to find it. Information: www.discoverdenton.com.

Fridays and Saturdays Ghosts of Denton haunted history tours. The city of Denton, and the county surrounding it, has fascinating history. It also has more than its fair share of ghostly stories. Join Shelly Tucker, a professional storyteller for 27 years, on a 90 minute tour. Most of the tour revolves around the square, although there is one (and possibly now there are two) stops about two blocks away. Tour participants should wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. In summer, it's a good idea to bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. Scheduled tours begin at 8:00 p.m (sharp) on Friday and Saturday nights from Jupiter House Coffee at 106 N. Locust in Denton (on the east side of the Courthouse-on-the-Square). Advance tickets are available online or at Jupiter House Coffee. Information: www.ghostsofdenton.com.
