The Wurst Fun of Summer.
Is it Fest yet? The Vancouver Sausage Festival, deemed the “last blowout of summer fun”, will be the weekend after Labor Day (as always) September 7-9, 2012 on the St. Joseph School and Parish grounds (6500 Highland Drive, Vancouver, WA).
This summer tradition (41 years now!) kicks off Friday night with all the best Fest fun: carnival rides and games, 5K Fun Run (Saturday morning), Bingo, many handicraft booths, a variety of live music and entertainment on the Main stage (including 5 Guys Named Moe, Radical Revolution, dance performances, Hula Hoop contest, and the Grand Finale of the Southwest Washington’s Got Talent contest!) beer and wine in the Fest Garden, and food, food, and more food! Sausage served every way you can think of, corn on the cob, grilled chicken, burgers, elephant ears, and the best home-baked sweets you can imagine!
The Vancouver Sausage Fest is again partnering with the Vancouver Fire Department to support their annual Christmas Food Drive, so please donate a non-perishable food item when you come. General admission is $2 or $1 with a food donation.
