  • Schlachtfest at Crystal Brook Mountain Brauhaus Resort

    Greene County

    Schlachtfest is a one of a kind experience that is sure to be fun for the whole family and one for the scrapbook. Celebrated 4 times annunally throughout the fall, festivities include live German/American music by a renowned German band, authentic German/American cuisine, abundant German beer on tap, topped with a traditional Schlachtfest celebration parade lead by our very own Master of Ceremonies.

    A Schlachtfest is a traditional German celebration going back thousands of years, celebrating the pig, as pork is traditionally a staple in the German diet. Each fall townspeople would harvest their pigs and process them into various roasts, sausages, soups and other delicacies making sure to utilize the entire pig without waste. Schlachtfest is a way for the German people to praise and celebrate the pig and all that it has done and provided for them throughout the year.

    Today we celebrate Schlachtfest to enjoy great food and drink as well as continuing a great cultural tradition. The evening starts with a traditional Schlachtfest dinner including Metzel soup, Sultze (headcheese), cucumber salad, fresh ham, bratwurst, blutwurst, liverwurst, hox, boiled potatoes, dumplings, sauerkraut, and finished off with our famous Napoleon for dessert. After the traditional meal is over the festivities continue including dance and parade. Following the parade, the pig is then raffled off for you to take home a piece of port for you to enjoy with your family. This is sure to be a night you will never forget! Starts at 6pm.
