FOOD FOR THOUGHT

When it comes to food, German Fest attendees are known for their culinary consumption.

The following list shows various foods & amounts consumed during German Fest each year:

  • 20,000 bratwurst
  • 20,000 pieces of torte and pastries
  • 20,000 roast pork sandwiches
  • 15,000 pieces of strudel
  • 10,000 pounds of potatoes used in potato pancakes
  • 10,000 pounds of potato salad
  • 10,000 pounds of sauerkraut
  • 9,000 dumplings
  • 8,000 pounds of onions
  • 5,000 pounds of coleslaw
  • 5,000 chickens + 200 pigs for Spanferkel

So, how much food is that? Let’s do the math:

  • If you stack end-to-end the 20,000 brats consumed, it stretches the length of eight Empire State Buildings! That’s 10,000 feet!
  • Would you prefer a sports analogy? 10,000 feet of brats is like the length of 28 football fields.
