In its 57th year, Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival is back with a new theme: “Brattie Supports our First Responders.” With over 100,000 visitors, it is the only festival in Ohio that holds a parade every night. 

There will be eating contests, beer gardens, the crowning of the Bratwurst Royalty, a stein auction, and free entertainment. Rides and games will be there, too! 

A craft show will be open all three days. Adults and children grades K through 12 are eligible to enter the art show. 

There will be other contests, too! A Pigtail Contest is scheduled to take place on Schines Art Park Stage on Saturday. Kids aged 3 to 11 can compete. A Pretty Baby Contest and the Royalty Pagents will also be fun to watch!

The parades will be at 7pm on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, it kicks off at 4 pm. The parade route starts at the intersection of North Sandusky Avenue and runs south. 

The 5K Color Run/Walk starts at 9 am at Bucyrus High School on Saturday. All registered participants will receive a finisher medal.
