Sauerkraut Festival in Waynesville, Ohio

WAYNESVILLE, Ohio, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Waynesville, Ohio, which bills itself as the "Antiques Capital of the Midwest," will host 300,000 people this weekend at its annual Sauerkraut Festival.

The 35-year-old festival boasts 58 specialty food tents that feature such delights as sauerkraut pie, sauerkraut pizza, sauerkraut brownies, sauerkraut on-a-stick and cabbage rolls, but the real attraction is the 500 craft booths.

Festival organizers told the Cincinnati Enquirer it's not unusual for the 29 non-profits that run the food booths to make as much as $20,000 selling food that incorporates sauerkraut.

Almost all of the 2,725 residents of Waynesville are involved in the festival, many cooking the 6 tons of cabbage -- not a local crop -- that is trucked in for the event.

Although lines form early for such fare as sauerkraut pizza, most in the village agree the worst recipe has been sauerkraut ice cream.

But those wanting to enjoy their sauerkraut and brat with a beer will be sorely disappointed. Waynesville is a dry community.
