Jim Dixon brought this up on eGullet and I'm intrigued:
Anyone ever been? What's it like?
I'm also interested in checking out Momokawa's Sakery which also happens to be in Forest Grove http://www.sakeone.c...tastingroom.htm
What do you think?

It is a fun, old-fashioned family day with a church bazaar, bingo, and kids games. You can buy sausage and kraut to take home. My husband has already moved his 'Got Kraut' shirt to the top of his drawer in anticipation. We try to go every year - it is definitely worth the drive!

We went last year with a Dutch friend of ours. Verboort is a tiny town, and pretty provincial. The Dutch ancestry was considerably diluted with non-Dutch things. For example, our Dutch friend was miffed at the "Got kraut" t-shirts because that's the German term, after all, and this was not a German festival. She was the only one that seemed to have a problem with it, though, as the Verboort descendants didn't seem to know and/or care about the distinction.
But the most important part-- the food! The sausages and kraut were *extremely* good. We didn't stay for the full dinner, but we did buy a few sausages at the snack bar, and took a string of links and a tub of zuurkool to go home with. We'll definitely be going back this year.
When it gets closer to the time, I'll post a reminder here and maybe we can arrange a PFG Sausage Fest.
