Kraut Music Fest

After 12 years, Kraut Music Fest is making a comeback, bringing to life the old Kraut Fest–a 50 year Wisconsin tradition celebrating sauerkraut and music. This family-oriented event kicked off on Thursday, June 18 and continued through Sunday, June 21. This year’s Kraut Music Fest had over 30 bands performing on two stages and also featured a kraut eating contest, the Kraut Queen and Kraut Princess competitions, Saturday night fireworks, a skydiving exhibition, and much more!

The Kraut Music Fest Queen competition is also a long-running Racine tradition, except this is the first year in 12 years that a Queen has been crowned. New to the Fest is the Princess competition. This year, there were eight hopeful princesses and five hopeful queens competing. Congratulations to Marly, the new Kraut Music Fest Queen and to Sophia, the new Kraut Music Fest Princess. Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® was thrilled to be a sponsor of this tradition and to have Attorney Steven Botzau participate as one of the judges!
