Yes, there is actually a festival honoring Sauerkraut, held this year for the 43rd year in the little beaucolic town of Waynesville, Ohio, just south of Dayton. We have heard that this event garners 350,000 or more visitors for a 3 day event in Mid-October. And we have heard there is quite a buzz in the crowd… Fellow artists have told us how wonderful this festival is. So we applied. And we have been waiting for the jury’s final decisions on our work. Last week we were asked to provide evidence of our process for making soap, and dying silk. So we worked on a document, and shipped it off to the jury committee….
And we received the letter formally welcoming us to the Sauerkraut festival as vendors. Yeah! This will be our first big, stay overnight, event. So we are excited, and looking forward to this so much.
If you are looking for a fun drive and a day out…here are more details:
Saturday, October 12th 9:00am – 8:00pm
Sunday, October 13th 9:00am – 6:00pm
The Ohio Sauerkraut Festival is always held the second full weekend of October.
The Ohio Sauerkraut Festival welcomes over 450 artisans every year from 28 different states (including Hawaii) to sell their hand-crafted items. The Ohio Sauerkraut Festival is a juried show; the jury committee reviews each booth during the Festival to ensure that only high quality, hand-crafted items are exhibited.
