Join us at the German Sausage Festival for Elberta's famous German sausage and sauerkraut, plus continuous entertainment for adults and children, and over 200 arts and crafts booths. Other scrumptious foods will include German style filled cabbage, potato salad, goulash, red beans and rice, hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ sandwiches, ice cream, popcorn and peanuts. There will be baked goods as well as arts and crafts for sale at the festival. Carnival rides, polka, country, contemporary and German music will also be provided for entertainment. The sausage festival is a town fund-raiser, spearheaded by Elberta's Volunteer Fire Department in 1978, whose proceeds are used for improving not only the fire department, but the town as well. Additionally, local non-profit organizations also benefit from the festival through proceeds from their booth sales and parking lot fees. Due to its huge success, the festival is now held twice a year on the last Saturday of March and October. We usually sell about 6,000 pounds of German Sausage each festival, and attract an estimated 20,000 visitors to each festival. All booth spaces are 10'x10'. Regular spaces are $75 each, and spaces requiring electrical are $80. If you want to purchase multiple spaces, it is advised that you send in your application early..don't wait until the last minute! The later it gets, the harder it is to group multiple spaces together.
