La Grange’s Schmeckenfest

Schmekenfest

Join the 30 teams vying to make the tastiest wassail and win the coveted title of “Schmecken--meister” at La Grange’s Schmeckenfest. This eighth-annual kickoff to the Christmas season starts at 5 p.m. December 3 with a parade around the downtown square followed by a Christmas-tree lighting, children’s activities, food vendors, and after-hours shopping at downtown stores. The main draw is the wassail competition, in which visitors vote on their favorite version of the hot cider or spiced-ale drink in the categories of leaded (alcoholic) and unleaded.
