  • German Fest Milwaukee
    Break out the lederhosen, polish your stein, and track down your fanciest sausage-eating bib; Milwaukee German Fest is just around the corner. Now in its 35th year, the annual celebration honors Deutchland and all of its descendants with a three-day party filled with authentic food, music, and activities. More than 20,000 freshly grilled brats from Usinger's anchor a menu of schnitzel, goulasch, and other Bavarian favorites, all of which wash down nicely with gulps of Leinenkugel and other spirited beverages. However, the fest is about more than just feasting. Enjoy a thrill as jets shoot overhead during an air-and-water show before cheering on your favorite wiener at the dachshund derby or scoping out traditional song and dance performances by local groups. Throughout the weekend, vendors will showcase everything from nutcrackers to German costumes, and?at regular intervals?the living Glockenspiel will springs into action with a full band.

  • Wisconsin State Fairgrounds
    Since 1851, the Wisconsin State Fair has annually showcased the state's finest resources, stuffed fairgoers with an aromatic selection of world-class foods, and entertained guests with live bands and terrifying tractor flyovers. In between hot-stepping to the Steve Meisner Polka Band on August 9 and singing along to "Cracklin' Rosie" with Eric Ebert's Tribute to Neil Diamond on August 11, fair browsers will get their choice of day to frolic manfully among a ton of food stalls, games, thrill rides, outdoor events, interactive activities, and competitions. If your trio of the fair's famous cream puffs?whose airy creaminess is just as legendary in this reality as it is in alternate realities where Wisconsin won the Civil War?doesn't fill you up completely, test your gut's maximum occupancy with August 9's brat-eating contest (4 p.m.), which is best washed down beforehand with the root-beer-float-drinking contest (3 p.m.). Kids, meanwhile, can plummet down the fair's 200-foot giant slide, take splatter-art to messy new places at the Kohl's Color Wheel, or watch the state's fastest pigs race for the coveted frosted oatmeal cookie.
