Discover the Best of the Wurst
Get ready to have the best time as you discover the best Midwest WurstFest in Hermann, MO! Come celebrate all things sausage in this authentic, German settled and inspired town. Keep reading to learn all about what this fantastic festival has in store for meat-lovers and event-goers alike.
Sausage and Sauerkraut
You can almost hear the friendly Fräulein listing off all of the different kinds of wurst available, from bratwurst and knockwurst to liverwurst, bierwurst, and cheddarwurst. At this tasty annual event, you can discover all of the delectable differences between sausages as you sample the many varieties. We highly recommend that you bring a cooler with you so you can purchase your favorites and safely take them home with you.
In addition to sausage, there will be plenty of Sauerkraut tastings. This classic German combination creates the perfect pairing.
Be sure to check out the amateur and professional statewide sausage-making competition to find out who will be crowned the sausage king or queen!
If wurst isn’t your favorite choice, there will be other food vendors available too.
You will find more than sausage and sauerkraut at WurstFest. Cue the accordions and grab your partner to dance the day away to traditional German music. Or head over to the always popular wiener dog races! They may look like sausages with legs, but they sure can run. Or if you would rather do some running or walking yourself, take part in the annual volksmarch, a non-competitive nature walk. And while you’re enjoying all of the fun, make sure to try a few of the local wines and brews available from local purveyors.
