Once again, it’s time for the Sauerkraut Festival in Scappoose! This long-time tradition has become an annual event for our area for 22 years. Scappoose, once home to Steinfield’s pickle and sauerkraut factory, still brings in nearly 10,000 visitors to participate in activities such as cabbage bowling, sauerkraut eating contests, children’s cabbage patch and such treats as a chocolate sauerkraut cupcake, sauerkraut ice cream and the very delicious Sauerkraut Sandwich.
This free festival is organized by the Scappoose Community Club and sponsored by the City of Scappoose. Popular local vendors will be set up around the park offering food, activities and crafts for the kids.
Rain or shine, Scappoose’s Sauerkraut Festival will be held this Saturday, the 17th, from 10am to 6pm at Heritage Park.
