Coming to Bock Fest?
Schell's Bock Fest

Are you among the thousands who plan to attend Bock Fest at August Schell Brewery this Saturday?  New Ulm is ready for you!  It will be a full weekend of fun!  Here are a few things to know:

Be safe and ride the Free Bock Fest Shuttle Bus.  The buses run continuous routes around town.  On Friday, buses will run from 6pm-2am and make stops at Downtown (B&L Bar), Best Western Plus, Turner Hall, and Starkeller.  On Saturday, buses and vans will from from 10:30am-2am, stopping at Downtown (B&L Bar), Schell’s Brewery, Best Western Plus, Turner Hall, Starkeller,  and the Event Center.  Explore all of the fun happening around town, and don’t drink and drive!  Contact the B&L Bar with any questions about the Bock Fest Shuttles (507-354-2610).

Come a day (or two) early!  Friday events and activities include music at The Starkeller, The Grand Kabaret, MonaLena, B&L Bar, and a Bock Fest Promo Party at Green Mill.  

Saturday morning the fun starts early!  There are a variety of workouts available (if you want to burn a few calories before consuming more).  Or, begin downtown for bloody marys and breakfast at any of our many restaurants and bars.  Live music at downtown bars starts at 8:30 am!  Check out the Ice Bar at the B&L Bar!

Pace yourself at Bock Fest, ’cause there’s plenty to do after the party at Schell’s ends at 4:30pm!  There are after-parties at The Event Center, and Green Mill/New Ulm Conference Center.  Want to head downtown for a bit? Dance to music at Lamplighter, Rodney’s Tavern, Turner Hall, The Grand Kabaret, and B&L Bar – all located in historic downtown.

There is so much to do in New Ulm this time of year, besides festing.  Get some ideas on what to do with an extended stay this weekend!
