Bratwurst Festival Crafts
Bucyrus is widely recognized as the “Bratwurst Capital of America”. The Bratwurst Festival was first
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 Hall
North 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.
