Bavarian Blast 


One of New Ulm's biggest celebrations happens mid-July every year. A German-American music festival, it features all sorts of music, including German-style bands, old-time, rock and country music. Plenty of food and drink options appeal to all tastes. Stein holding contest, sauerkraut eating competition, barrel rolling, souvenir sales, a 5k/10k, Polka Service on Sunday morning, and the Bavarian Blast Parade make this a highlight of travel to Minnesota!
