Dear Friends: When our board voted last week to proceed with the 2020 Bratwurst Festival, we did so to offer our community the opportunity to return to something enjoyable and provide a sense of normalcy. We thought we would be able to do so safely in an outdoor environment. Since that decision was shared, we have heard many comments, both positive and negative. The last thing we wanted to do was to further divide our community.
We have continued talks with local elected officials, as well as the Crawford County Health Department and Crawford County EMA. Through discussions with these officials and based on feedback that we have received from the public, in conjunction with the news of a possible Covid-19 outbreak within a local school district, we have decided that the prudent decision is to cancel the 2020 Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival. The safety of our community is important to us.
For those of you who were against having the festival, we listened to your comments and took your concerns to heart. For those who were in favor of the festival, we appreciate your support and pledge to come back better than ever.   

Our committee will begin contacting vendors, sponsors, and other affiliates of the festival immediately to individually discuss their options with them.
Our volunteers pour their heart and soul into promoting and presenting the festival each year. That group of people will now transition to planning the 2021 Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival.
We hope to see you on August 19, 20 and 21 of 2021. Until then, we wish you all the best in health and safety, and we ask that you all be kind to one another.




Even though we are disappointed we can't have our annual Bratwurst Festival this year we are excited about adding a new event. This year we have partnered with Endo Monkey Racing to host our first Virtual 5k Run/Walk Aug 13-15.

There is nothing like a Brat and Beer after running or walking a 5k.

Sign up today for the Bucyrus, Ohio Bratwurst Festival VIRTUAL 5k! Participants can run, or walk (and Polka???) to their finish line anywhere (as long as they are 6-feet apart), any time between August 13 and August 15.

VIRTUALLY, participate in Germany or on ANY path, sidewalk, even backyards, & treadmills!

The only thing that goes better with a brat than sauerkraut? A great sponsor to make this event happen-we want to thank our partners at First Federal Community Bank.

Registration closes August 9th at 11:59pm.

Packets will be mailed out prior to Aug 13!

We are thrilled to have you run for your appetite with us! Run Hard, Stay Hungry and we will see you soon!
