Nothing says fun like fermentation!
The 49th-annual Ohio Sauerkraut Festival in Waynesville features more than 460 craft vendors from over 25 states and a whole lot of cabbage. Started in 1970, the first fest served 528 pounds of sauerkraut to about 1,500 guests. Today, guests — of which there are approximately 350,000 — eat more than 7 tons of kraut.
Dine on dishes ranging from sauerkraut pizza and German sundaes (mashed potatoes topped with kraut) to Polish cabbage soup and sauerkraut donuts.
9 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. Free admission. Downtown Waynesville, sauerkrautfestival.waynesvilleohio.com.
