The German Sausage Festival in Elberta, Alabama

Elberta, Al. German Sausage Festival

Für Das Gute Leben! These words welcome visitors to the small town of Elberta, Alabama, and they describe it perfectly. Für das gute leben means "for the good life", and this weekend over 30,000 people are expected to be in town to enjoy some of the good life for themselves. The German Sausage Festival will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 26th, with food, music, and fun in store for all of the attendees.


The Sausage Festival is a bi-annual event sponsored by the Elberta Volunteer Fire Department. It began in 1978, and has grown steadily over the years. Over 7,000 pounds of German Sausage will be grilled to perfection, along with other favorites like German stuffed cabbage, goulash, and German potato salad. Live music goes on all day, but the hit of the festival is always the Polka band that takes center stage in the afternoon.


As if the great food and music weren't enough, over 200 arts and crafts booths will be open, with something for everyone. And for the kids, there's a children's area, complete with carnival rides and face painting. For more information about Elberta's German Sausage Festival, CLICK HERE.



So, join us for the Sausage Festival and see what the good life is really all about. And remember, you can live here, too!
