"Ohio's Eatingest Festival"
Okay, so not a Holiday but in Bucyrus we celebrate it like one! August 14th, 15th and 16th Come to downtown Bucyrus and enjoy the most unique Bratwurst you'll ever find! Food and art vendors line the street and multiple stages guarantee that you'll always have something to entertain you. Each day at the festival features a parade with Saturday's being the biggest of the event!
Thursday August 14th- The first day of the Festival is opened by the "Running of the Brat" where the first Brat is cooked and then ran along the festival route for the Grand Marshal to enjoy the first bite! Then it is "EAT ON" and you'll be amazed at the wide variety of food and beverages served! You'll see a Pig Tail Contest, Art Show, and Ice Cream Eating Contest. Don't miss the Nightly Parade at 7pm down Sandusky Avenue. The Queen's Pageant where we crown our next Bratwurst Festival Queen immediately follows the parade on the Main Stage.
Friday August 15th- Enjoy another day of none stop eating! Schmidt's Creme Puffs are always a must (there is even a Creme Puff Eating Contest!), the ladies of the Home Matters make the best funnel cakes, and of course you have to compare Carle's Bratwurst to Bratworks. These two companies are the last companies left making the traditional Bucyrus Bratwurst and you'll hear endless arguments about which one is better! In the mood for the really unusual? Try Bakers' Bratwurst Pizza, it tastes WAY better than it sounds! The Nightly Parade is yet again at 7pm right down the main strip of Sandusky Avenue. The FC Bank stage features Aaron Tippin at 9:30pm.
