Goetta brownie? Got it. Goetta burrito? Got it. Goetta egg roll? Definitely got it. No matter how you like your goetta, this meat and oats jamboree known as Glier's Goettafest has got it all, sans perhaps a goetta swimming pool. (Maybe next year?) This celebration has grown every year since it began, increasing to over 100,000 visitors from all 50 states in 2009. Be sure to give Glier's newest edition to the festival, a giant walking piece of goetta, called affectionately "The Goetta Guy," a big hug. There will also be a goetta coney eating competition along with lots of live entertainment. And for those who would rather play with their food than eat it, expect a goetta ring toss, goetta slide and more for the kids. Also each food vendor follows a 3-2-1 policy which includes 3 goetta items, 2 non-goetta items and one dessert to ensure plenty of goetta to go around. Goetta hold of yourself — this festival lasts all weekend, 5-11 p.m. Friday, noon-11 p.m. Saturday and noon-9 p.m. Sunday, at Newport on the Levee.
