Yikes, this one slipped up under the radar*. Tomorrow, Friday Sept 19 and Saturday September 20th, is the 30th annual Wallingford Wurst Festival at the St. Benedict School.
…the festival started as a small fundraiser for the school. Today the festival brings more than 10,000 visitors to the Wallingford neighborhood in one weekend. The Wurst Festival features rides, an array of delicious foods, games for kids of all ages, craft booths, homemade sweets, a book sale, a Biergarten, a raffle, plus live entertainment on an outdoor stage.
All these activities and there’s no charge for admission. So come celebrate community in a family-friendly neighborhood environment, and meet your neighbors, alumni and friends you may not have seen in a while.
Did we mention food? Of course there’s bratwurst and sauerkraut, but also grilled salmon, sweet corn, baked potatoes with all the trimmings, pasta, Caesar salad, Filipino food, burgers and a kid’s lunch at booths and in our covered outdoor restaurant. At the indoor cafe, folks can enjoy beverages with a homemade desserts. Or swing upstairs to have a snack with your beer in the Biergarten.
Spend all day experiencing the thrills of our rides. Stroll around the grounds and see the finery of more than 60 craft vendors. Take a chance with a raffle ticket. Reminisce with the old photographs in the Alumni Room. Search the Book Shop for interesting titles. Check out the games in our Fun Zone, and maybe even take away a prize or two. Sit back and watch the musicians and dancers on the outdoor stage or stick around after 9 p.m. and dance to the band in the Biergarten.
Scroll to the bottom of their web site for a list of the musicians and times. Acts include Dudley Manlove and Caspar Babypants.
