Discover an Endless Variety of German Sausages at the Hermann Wurstfest
Can’t you almost hear the friendly Fräulein listing off all of the different kinds of wurst available, like; bratwurst, knackwurst, liverwurst, bierwurst, cheddarwurst, and so on, and so on? You’ll be able to sample all of the delectable differences between them and then purchase your favorites to take home with you. You may want to bring a cooler to keep your sausages safe for travel! Plus there will be lots of Sauerkraut tastings, so you can experience the classic German pairing! Also, 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! But don’t worry, there will be other food vendors available too if you get your fill of sausage… if that’s even possible!
Find So Many Things to Do at the Fest
In-between eating copious amounts of sausage, you’ll need some fun activities to fill your time at the Hermann 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.
The Wurstfest Just Gets Better and Better!
This year, there will be new ways to show your love for sausage, including a special sausage and sauerkraut-making class on Friday, March 22nd at the infamous Wurst Haus. In addition to creating your own delectable delights, you’ll be treated to a fun and delicious dinner too! There will also be more sauerkraut-making demos and classes at the Wurst Market on Saturday to be a part of. These events are sure to fill up quickly, so reserve your spots soon.
