Sauerkraut, turkey, bazaar and classic cars a Providence City tradition

Hundreds of people are expected to be at the Spring Creek Middle School Friday night for the annual Sauerkraut and Turkey Dinner and Bazaar hosted by Providence City. It has been going on each year about this time for decades and committee chair Terri Wennergren says some Providence residents make their own sauerkraut for the popular event. She says the celebration stems from the city’s rich German and Swiss ancestry. “Our dinner will start at 5:30 (p.m.) and run until 7 (p.m.),” Wennergren explains. “Then the craft booth and free childrens games will run from 5 to 8. Anybody can come. “The dinner will be $6 for the turkey dinner in advance, $3 for the hot dog dinner in advance. At the door, you can purchase tickets as well. It will be $7 for the turkey, $4 for the hot dog.” Wennergren says the bazaar will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. and it will feature craft booths, free childrens, games, caricature drawings and balloons. She says this is a great place to visit old friends, make new friends and do some Christmas shopping. Wennergren encourages people to particularly stop by the Historic Preservation booth and look at the display of Providence City’s rich heritage. The day after Providence City’s annual Sauerkraut Dinner and Bazaar, the city will be hosting its third annual Car Show on Saturday, October 23. Committee chair, Sherry Ward, says the Car Show will be held Saturday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Zollinger Park, just east of the Spring Creek Middle School, 350 West 100 North. “There’s going to be a lot of cars there,” Ward explains. “We’ll have some music going from Lovell Studios. The Mountain Crest Band will be cooking up some dinner for a fund raiser. With your charitable donation to the food pantry you can enter to win a toolbox donated from NAPA Autoparts.” Ward says more than 70 cars participated in last year’s popular event and even more cars are expected this year. She says it costs $10 to register until Saturday when the cost goes up to $15. For more information, contact Sherri or check out the website at
