You won't want to miss the semiannual Original German Sausage Festival in Elberta. This non-stop event offers entertainment for the whole family, and noone will leave with an empty stomach. Occuring on the last Saturday in March and the last Saturday in October each year, proceeds benefit the Elberta Volunteer Fire Department and the city.
Original German Sausage Festival Food & Drink
Alfred Stucki managed Elberta's Locker Plant in the 1900's, and he is credited with creating the secret recipe for Elberta's famous sausage that is served at the festival to this day. The Original German Sausage Festival also cooks up other German classics like potato salad, goulash, sauerkraut and baked goods. Those who aren't looking to try Alfred's famous recipe can choose from a variety of grilled goods like hamburgers, BBQ and hot dogs.
