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 Festival is more than just a weekend of fun. 

It serves as a major fundraising event for many of the area’s civic and charitable groups.”



NOTICE - MAY 2020:  

The Ohio Sauerkraut Festival Planning Committee is still preparing for our 2020 festival on October 10th-11th. If it is determined that safety cannot be maintained in a way that allows us to continue hosting the festival, we will send out a notification to the community, as well as those of you who are involved as either vendors, sponsors, or guests!
We do hope that it doesn't come to a cancellation, but at this time, we are NOT cancelled.

Thank you!
