Annual Sauerkraut Show

  • Downtown Market 233 North Broadway Aurora, IL, 60505 United States (map)

Each and every August, when the dew is on the cabbage and that pungent Brassica scent begins to waft across the prairie, you know, it’s “Fermentin’ Time!”


This exciting and fun-filled annual event is hosted by Aurora’s very own “World-renown Fermentation Expert”, Jenette Sturges, a local celebrity on countless and varied levels. Join Jenette as she showcases a special recipe featuring a simple and easy method for “Makin’ Kraut.” Sauerkraut is loaded with many beneficial enzymes and vitamins and is amazingly easy to create in literally minutes. Everyone who attends the “must-see” demonstration will receive free samples of fresh homemade sauerkraut along with recipes and giveaways.
