Waynesville's Annual Sauerkraut Festival

Join us for a weekend full of fun, charm, fabulous shopping, and fantastic food.  Approximately 460 craft vendors from over 25 states bring their handmade goods to our small town of Waynesville. 

Filling Main Street and then some, these vendors, along with almost 60 food items will be awaiting your arrival.

All of the food vendors are sponsored by
local area non-profit organizations. 

Shown here are the handrolled cabbage rolls brought to us by St. Augustine's Church.

This anxiously anticipated super-festival is one record breaking festival, year after year.  

A classic of the festival,
this sauerkraut pizza is a crowd favorite! 
Who knew sauerkraut on pizza could taste so good?

Over 400 vendors and estimated 350,000 visitors line the streets of downtown Waynesville, OH for Ohio's Annual Sauerkraut Festival.

The Ohio Sauerkraut Festival 2021

October 9th-10th, 2021


“The Festival is more than just a weekend of fun. It is also a weekend where the entire Waynesville Community comes together in a very dramatic way for the support and good of all.  The festival celebrates tradition and serves as a major fundraising event for many of the area's civic and charitable groups.  It also provides scholarships for our graduating seniors."


 The festival will be welcoming the use of masks and following CDC guidelines during the weekend.  We believe that we can social distance and be safe while having an enjoyable weekend!  

Please Note, * In accordance with federal regulations, masks will be MANDATORY on the shuttle buses.  We ask that if you ride the shuttles, that you respectfully wear your mask for the safety of our drivers and other passengers.
