Real German Food & Music And Early Holiday Shopping At 10th Annual Event
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
What is a schnitzel?
The German derivative is "a shaving," which gives a pretty good hint toward the popular food served at the Hillsborough Schnitzelfest. Schnitzel is typically made from a thin slice of meat, which is then breaded or grilled, and the Hillsborough Schnitzelfest proudly produces the most authentic German food outside of Germany!
The 2012 Schitzelfest celebrates the event's 10 year anniversary! Schnitzelfest opens free to the public on Saturday, September 29th from 12pm-5pm on the corner of West Main and Central Streets in Hillsborough, NH just next to lovely Butler Park. The event will be held under tents, rain or shine. Parking is free at curbside spaces and two nearby municipal lots.
Join the anticipated 3,000 guests who line up early on Saturday to have a hearty meal of Schnitzel (breaded or grilled), Bratwurst, Knackwurst, Wieners, Homemade German Potato Salad, Rotkohl & Sauerkraut, Breads and Desserts. Beer & Wine is available so you can raise your steins and say Prost and get up and do the Chicken Dance or listen to the Wunder Kinder Chor perform traditional German music. Typical Adult meal plates include either one or two meat items along with delicious side choices for a nominal fee and the event has hosted a "fast food" station, where kids can grab a regular hot dog, fries and a drink for around $5. Additional sausage, fries and sauerkraut are also typically available at the "fast food" area. Check with event staff for additional information on this year's festivities!
Once you have filled your belly with German fare, start your holiday shopping early by browsing among the separate tents in Butler Park filled with crafters and get your "Schnitzelmen" souvenirs and other unique items.
It's certainly a fun word to say, so go enjoy a taste of authentic German schnitzel at the 10th annual Hillsborough Scnhnitzelfest!
