The History of Sausage Fest
Sausage Fest began over a decade ago as a simple backyard barbecue in Bay View. At the time it was called the Lakefront Festival of Sausage, channeling the concept of “Sausage for a Cause” and dedicated to showcasing fine Milwaukee sausage and beer. As the event grew, the need for a larger venue became apparent. Café Centraal was happy to step up to the plate and so the tradition continues.

About Camp American Legion
All net proceeds from sausage sales benefit Camp American Legion, located on Big Carr Lake, north of Rhinelander, WI. Camp American Legion provides – at no cost – a retreat for veterans and active duty service members with physician-documented physical and/or psychological illnesses, injuries or disabilities. Active duty military recently returned from a deployment, as well as any family who have recently lost a service member, are also welcome to participate in Camp American Legion’s rehabilitation, grief and reintegration programs.
