Join as we celebrate Burlington's German heritage. Enjoy a fun fall evening as the last days of summer slide down the river. The smell of bratwurst and the tang of sauerkraut waft through the fall air with the laughter of the Midwest's finest Bavarian musicians.
German dishes for sale include our specialties: Homemade Beef & Cabbage Rolls, Sauerkraut Potato Soup, Homemade Applesauce, Hot German Potato Salad, along with Brats and Smoked Pork Chops - hot off the grill. We will also have German desserts this year - Yum!
This is our signature event and is a fantastic way for our community to support our club projects as we support our community! What could be better than food, fun, families, polkas and an ice-cold beer?
