New Ulm’s German heritage is our biggest draw, but these events and activities shown below will give you great photos and posts on Social Media! From the hip to the frozen, gnomes to bluegrass, we host great music, tasty food and lots of fun every year!
This restored hotel from the mid-1800s features free music every Friday and Saturday. Musical styles are in the range of folk, blues, light rock, jazz and other. You can access the attached restaurant, too!
Morgan Creek Vineyards
In addition to great wine, they have developed a fun tourism following for their “Wine Down for the Weekend” events Friday nights and twice-monthly “Jazz Nite!” An outdoor oven makes great pizzas!
The brewery has a great winter festival filled with over 5,000 fun-loving young people enjoying music, food and, of course, Schell’s beer! When it closes at 4:30pm come to the German Mardi Gras fun at Turner Hall, called Fasching. Join the “Parade of Costumes” if you dare!
Who can argue with over 150 years of brewing success? Come out and enjoy the beautiful gardens, squawk at a roaming peacock, visit the wonderful gift shop, and tour the “prettiest brewery in America!”
State Street Theater
With a professional director, this home-grown group has ramped-up their offerings with many shows during the year. They specialize in “murder mysteries,” but tackle many styles of theater.
Flying Dutchmen Hill Climb
New Ulm’s long-lived motorcycle club, The Flying Dutchmen, host several cycle events at their lovely club house and grounds throughout the summer that are open to the public. Flat-track races and hill climbs are their specialties, but they host rock bands on occasion, too. It’s great fun for everyone!
