Sausage Festivals

In our day-to-day dedication to old-world recipes and the long-standing traditions of the original “Porkopolis,” we at Queen City Sausage are in ceaseless celebration of craft sausage. With every link we stuff, we revel in the history that makes it delicious, the artisan who brings it to life, and the hungry craft-sausage loyalist that has made Queen City Sausage a thriving Cincinnati icon. In a town that once was home to more than 40 sausage shops, Queen City stands proudly as the largest remaining link to Cincinnati’s sausage narrative. It is only fitting, then, that we should gather. That all of us – from Elmer Hensler himself to our Queen City team to our family of customers – should come together in craft-sausage merriment. That we should flash back to the glory of Porkopolis. That we shall meet around the grill for super savoriness served just right… The Queen City Sausage Festival hits the Cincinnati summer scene 11 – 12 – 13, 2014.

 

 

Join Us July 11 – 12 – 13, 2014 At Newport’s Riverfront Levee, Newport KY.

About
August 1-4, 2013
Look for all of your favorite food booths as well as rides for the kids and game booths.
Since its creation, Glier’s Goettafest has sought to be a family fun festival, offering numerous forms of entertainment to go with a delicious and extensive food menu.

Glier’s Goettafest has consistently provided festival guests with live music and cloggers throughout the festival. Goetta games such as the Goetta Toss, Goetta Slide, and Goetta Ring Toss have given Goettafans young and old a chance to win fun prizes.

Glier’s Goettafest made its triumphant return to Northern Kentucky in 2005 with its move to Newport’s Riverfront Levee, just down the steps from the Newport Aquarium. The Riverfront Levee offers festivalgoers with a beautiful view and plenty of space to walk around. Glier’s provided guests with two large Cooling Stations in which they were able to get out of the sun and sit and relax.

Goetta, a German dish, is often compared to breakfast sausage or scrapple. It is a unique, delicious and nutritious mixture of pork, beef, steel-cut (pinhead) oats, and seasonings, which is carefully prepared by the Goetta Specialists at Glier’s. The product is then packaged in one pound rolls or is fresh cut at the grocery or restaurant from larger blocks of Goetta. Most people enjoy Glier’s Goetta at breakfast as a side dish with eggs or pancakes.

What is goetta?
Pronounced “get-uh,” goetta is the ultimate blend of pork, beef, whole-grain steel-cut oats, onions, and spices. Carefully crafted daily in slow-cooked small batches, Glier’s Goetta is the best-selling goetta in the world. Its crispy-creamy texture and unique flavors are most deliciously showcased simply browned, hot from the pan.

How did Goettafest come to be?
Goettafest was created by Glier Family as a way to celebrate their best-loved goetta, and to honor the loyalists who have made it a regional favorite. What began as a gathering in the beginning, has become a weekend-long goetta-focused fun festival bringing together hungry folks from all over the world. Set against the breathtaking backdrop that is Northern Kentucky’s Newport on the Levee, and featuring dozens of clever and inventive ways to enjoy goetta, Glier’s Goettafest is the official family reunion for goetta enthusiasts.

Is there an admittance fee to Goettafest?
Entry to Glier’s Goettafest is absolutely free. So is the continuous live entertainment – and world-class company, too. All sorts of beverages, including beer, are available for sale throughout Goettafest. And every bite of food is priced at a family-friendly point of $6 or less.

How did Glier’s Goettafest land at Newport on the Levee?
Newport on the Levee is the most central point in the land where goetta was born for goetta loyalists to meet. The great convenience of the venue is matched only by the picturesque and sweeping views of Downtown Cincinnati.

Where is the best place to park?
Go to Newport on the Levee’s main entrance parking first. If that is full, you will find many other lots in the blocks surrounding the event that are both convenient and reasonably priced.

What kind of handicap accessibility does Goettafest offer?
All of Newport on the Levee, the venue for Glier’s Goettafest, is handicap accessible. There are elevators at every level, including each one of the parking garage, and the site of Goettafest, specifically, at the top of the Levee, is accessible by a long incline ramp. Special arrangements may be made by contacting 859.291.1800.

May I bring my pet to Glier’s Goettafest?
Unfortunately, the City of Newport does not allow pets on Newport on the Levee property.

Is there any shade available at Glier’s Goettafest?
Goetta Place Hall is open to the public throughout the festival. A large, cool dining hall, it is the perfect place for sun-soaked goetta-lovers to enjoy their treats and each other’s company.

What is the best part of Glier’s Goettafest?
Why, the very best part of Glier’s Goettafest is the goetta, of course. Dozens and dozens of local food vendors come together at Goettafest, at the top of their goetta game. Each of their booths boasts three new goetta-centered recipes, two goetta-less snacks, and one dessert, without any duplication allowed throughout the festival. There’s a reason Glier’s Goettafest is one of the world’s largest celebrations of a single food – it’s the goetta.

What in the world is a goetta vending machine?
The goetta vending machine is one of the most famous traditions of Glier’s Goettafest. Offered only over festival weekend to goetta-revelers, at a very special celebration price, it dispenses goetta-love one one-pound roll at a time.
