Come enjoy good food, fellowship, and fun!

The word “Brats” is in our festival name, so you know we will be featuring our secret recipe mild and spicy bratwurst! We will also have hot dogs and shredded chicken sandwiches.

We make our homemade German Potato Salad in the kitchen along with Red Cabbage, and Sauerkraut. We will have local Corn on the Cob too!

And for dessert- we have homemade Apple Dumplings and Made from Scratch Desserts- pies and cakes!

If you are thirsty, we will have plenty of bottled water and select soft drinks on hand. Our beer wagon will feature a selection of Domestic and Craft Beer.
