COPPERAS COVE — Trinity Lutheran Church will host its annual German Sausage Fest on Nov. 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1206 W. Avenue B (in City Park).
Bulk sausage sales will be from 8 a.m. until sold out at the church, 518 E. U.S. Highway 190, across from Walgreens.
Visitors are invited to feast on handcrafted German-style sausage and side dishes while tapping their toes to live music provided by a local “old-timey” band.
The side dishes are sauerkraut, German-style potato salad, green beans, fresh brotchen rolls and homemade desserts.
The German Sausage Fest began as a Sunday barbecue in the 1950s and served a few hundred people, but has evolved into a full-blown German fest that functions as the church’s main fundraiser for the Lutheran Laymen’s League and the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.
All proceeds go to local charities.
During the fest, the church sells 3,850 pounds of the handcrafted German sausage that it makes fresh once each year from a secret family recipe.
Adult dinners are $9 each. Dinners for children younger than 12 are $6 each. Take-out dinners are available and bulk sausage is sold at the church on a first-come, first-serve basis for $7 per pound.
Uniformed members of the Copperas Cove fire and police departments can eat free. For more information, call Trinity Lutheran Church at 254-547-2225.
