I would like to personally thank the Kraut Krew for their tremendous efforts in planning this event!

Thank you to the Henderson Chamber for continued support in the Kraut Stand.

Thank you to the many residents of Henderson for their help in the Kraut Stand. Without your help, we wouldn't be able to pull this off.

The Kraut Krew's mission is to provide the best small town festival in southern Minnesota and i think that with a little help from mother nature, we accomplished our goal!

Thanks to all that attended the festival. Hope you see you all next year!

FRANKS Kraut still everyone's favorite Kraut.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

To all Hendersonites, and out of towners that helped in the Beer and Braut stand-

Without your help, we would not be able to serve the thousands of Kraut fans throughout the weekend.
The Kraut Krew is very thankful for all of your hard work! See you next year!

If you did not get your 2012 Henderson Sauerkraut Shirt

You can still get them. Stop in and see Tom or LaDonna at Bender's True Value, several sizes left.
