Sauerkraut, it's not just for the top of hot dogs, and if you've ever visited Waynesville's annual Ohio Sauerkraut Festival you'd have no doubt about that! You'll find sauerkraut as a key ingredient in food combinations you might never have imagined. Ice cream? It'll be there. Cookies?? In that too! Sauerkraut will be in EVERYTHING!
Now in it's 43rd year, the Ohio Sauerkraut Festival will swell downtown Waynesville to it's highest levels of the year! Literally, hundreds of thousands of people will visit this popular event featuring sauerkraut, and hundreds of arts and crafts vendors, 450+ from all over the country! And those arts and crafts vendors are screened to make sure they're handcrafted, no off the shelf items here!
This year's event is scheduled for October 13th & 14th. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Sunday hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Now one thing to keep in mind, Parking! You MIGHT find a place in one of the neighboring areas, but you might spend a lot of time looking for an elusive place to park. The far easier thing to do is go to Wayne Local High School on Dayton Road. The Athletic Boosters will be running shuttle buses back and forth, and this will make your day FAR easier!
A couple of other things to consider: rain or shine, this event happens! And don't bring your pets! Service animals only please! And no alcohol either, this is a family friendly event!
How do you get to the Sauerkraut Festival? It's actually pretty easy! From I-71, take SR73 west about four miles. From I-75, take SR73 east about 15 miles. Since RT 42 comes through, you've got other options from the north and south sides.
