I always enjoy attending Wurstfest. Its a great festival with a ton of foods to try. Prices are fair with some items being a steal and others a little high, but overall everything is affordable for it being a festival.
This year was the first time I had visited the new vendor area that is covered. It was filled with arts and crafts, German items, and had its own music stage to the side.
Favorite food items at the Wurstfest are always the multiple sausage stick, that has a roll and several kinds of sausage, and the potato pancake which comes with apple sauce on the side. The potato pancake is the steal I was referring to. Its a huge item that will put a dent in your hunger for not too much money. A sausage stick and a pancake will almost fill you up. The potato pancake is basically shredded potato like hash browns smashed into a large patty and then deep fried on flat iron.
The performances are never disappointing, with a good variety of music and performers, but seating at these shows can be problematic. Also weekend nights are premium and the festival can get so full its hard to even walk around and enjoy yourself.
Parking generally isnt a problem, the lot directly across the street (Knights of Columbus) usually has space and is priced fair.
If you've never been this is an event you need to experience at least once. It really demonstrates how diverse the population of Texas really is to have a festival of this type and magnitude here.
