This message is to inform you that this year’s Kraut Fest 5K and Kraut Festival has been cancelled. We hope to resume this event in 2020.  

The Kraut Fest planning committee said the event was canceled because of "circumstances beyond our control," and the "untimely resignation of the parks supervisor." 

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you all next year. 

We are issuing full refunds and you’ll receive an email within the next 1-3 business days to confirm your refund has been issued. At that point, it’ll take 5-7 banking days for your funds to be available for use. 

For questions regarding the 5K portion only, please contact us:
