Sausage event not the wurst way to spend time in Everett

September 30, 2013 by  

The 37th annual Everett Sausage Festival is taking place in the city this October over two days, allowing locals to sample some of the best examples of this German delicacy.

The festival will have a Bavarian theme in keeping with Oktoberfest, which takes place in many communities in the United States at this time of year. A beer garden is set to sell beer and wine, and dinner with various German treats will be available, as well as goodies from various food vendors. Some of the activities expected to take place include a talent showcase, bingo, a carnival, and music from local performers. Artists performing at this year’s festival include the 56th Army Band, Elvis tribute artist Shane Cobane, and Michelle Taylor & the Blues Junkies.

In addition, more than 30 arts and crafts vendors will be selling a variety of their artworks, which should give visitors an opportunity to get an early start on upcoming holiday shopping. There will also be plenty of activities for the children. Also, raffle tickets, which offer a top prize of $5,000, are to be sold throughout the day. Winners need not be in attendance to get a prize.

Everett print companies have no doubt been approached to help the organizers promote the festival and encourage members of the public to take part. The event will be held at the Perpetual Help School grounds from October 4 to 5. Admission is free. Call 425-312-5086 to find out more about the festival.
