Held July 19-20, the Poconos' Wurst Festival is a two-day celebration of Polish and German culture complete with age-appropriate activities for family members of all ages. Guests can enjoy three stages dedicated to live music and tap their toes to everything from polka to regional Austrian-German tunes, all while dancers in traditional costumes weave their way through the crowd. Food vendors will serve hearty, Old World comfort foods—including bratwursts, pierogies, and apple strudel—and refreshing beers. Adults can participate in games such as a stein-hoisting competition, old world sausage making demos, and sampling from Nello's Specialty Meats, while children can enjoy Bavarian juggling performances, marionette shows, face-painting stations, and a large, inflatable slide that runs all the way to the base of the Alps.
