Neftenbach Festival

Neftenbach was having a Renaissance Festival and celebrating their 800th year of being a town. They had lots of artisans there and a handful of patrons in costume as well. Having performed in the two largest Renaissance Festivals in Texas, we were curious. Our parents, who were visiting, enjoyed it as well.

One of the notable features was a really incredible hand-cranked Ferris wheel recreated from plans dating at around 1600. Only small children could ride it, but they looked like they were enjoying it.

It was a lot of fun, and really hot, but we wish we had a better grasp of German so we could have enjoyed the shows – they seemed to be drawing quite the crowd.
