One of the best things about living in Pflugerville is that it is so pfamily-pfriendly, so of course there’s plenty for children to enjoy at the annual Deutschen Pfest. In 2019, we celebrate with our 44th Pfest from May 17-19, 2019.

Carnival: Starting Friday, May 17, the carnival opens at Pfluger Park with rides specifically selected for children of all ages to enjoy. A weekend wristband is $20 for unlimited rides. The park is open from 5 p.m. – midnight.

Parade and children’s parade: The Deutschen Pfest parade on Saturday, May 18 starts at 10:45 a.m. in downtown Pflugerville. Enjoy marching bands, floats and community organizations as they celebrate in the parade. Children are encouraged to participate in the Children’s Parade.

Kids 1K: This Kids K is a great chance to burn off extra energy on Sunday, May 19. Children take off in a 1K sprint to the finish line. The main 5K is at 8 a.m. with the Kids K to follow. For participating in the Kids K, children receive a T-shirt which grants free entry into the Deutschen Pfest all weekend long.

Children’s area: A special children’s area is set up in Gilleland Park with a petting farm, kiddie train, inflatables and puppet shows at the east gate of Deutschen Pfest at Gilleland Creek. No admission is required to participate in the children’s area. At the petting farm children can feed animals of various types. The kiddie train is onsite giving rides around the park.
