Wishek cooks up 93rd Sauerkraut Day (KFYR TV)

It required over a hundred gallons of sauerkraut – stirred with pitchforks – to feed the thousands of people who showed up to the Wishek Association of Commerce’s Annual Sauerkraut Day festival in Wishek, N.D.  The sauerkraut was served with wieners, speck, mashed potatoes, cheese, buns, coffee, and water, and food could be taken to go.  The festival is held on the second Wednesday of October every year, and sees attendees from as far away as Wisconsin and Canada.  Mark your calendars for the 94th annual Sauerkraut Day, which will be held on October 9, 2019.
