Advance admission and drink tickets will go on sale Sept. 1. During Wurstfest, tickets will be available for purchase at the festival gates and online. Wurstfest also offers free admission on select dates and times, which will be announced at a later date.

This is the third year the festival is taking place following the devastating fire that destroyed the iconic Marktplatz building in 2019, days after the 59th festival ended. The building, which was erected in the late 1960s, was declared a total loss by local fire officials.

Marktplatz was rebuilt following the fire and given a fresh new look:

Wurstfest always starts on the first Friday of November. Future Wurstfest dates will be Nov. 1-10 in 2024 and Nov. 7-16 in 2025.
