Bratwurst Festival Crafts


Bucyrus is widely recognized as the “Bratwurst Capital of America”. The Bratwurst Festival was 1st celebrated in the summer of 1967. Today, it is estimated that over 100,000 people travel from far and wide to the annual event, consuming tons of fire-roasted bratwurst recipes. Our “Brats” were perfected by local butchers whose families emigrated here from Germany. Festivities include the crowning of Bratwurst Royalty, daily parades,eating contests, and a stein auction. We round out the festivities with continuous free entertainment, craft and art show, rides, games, beer gardens, and most of all- our friendship and hospitality.

This year, the craft area will be on South Sandusky Ave. between CVS and City Hall, as well as the City HallNorth Parking Lot and City Hall Patio. We are offering 1, 2, and 3 day spaces. Those choosing to participate all three days will be given spaces closest to and in the street. There is limited availability on placement of spaces requiring electricity.

While you are free to purchase your insurance wherever you like, we have found an option for $39 that will meet our specifications. Visit or ask Craft Chairperson for additional
