Description:

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 1976, 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. Although the recipe has changed somewhat over the years, the original secret recipe for Elberta's famous sausage is credited to Alfred Stucki who managed Elberta's Locker Plant from 1953 until his death in 1973. We usually sell about 6,000 pounds of German Sausage each festival, and attract an estimated 20,000 visitors to each festival.
