The Queen City Sausage Festival’s tag line states “Crafted Sausages, Grilled and Celebrated! Contained in these words is our commitment to producing great sausages, and our desire to gather, grill and celebrate friends, family, and community.

The Queen City Sausage Festival prides itself in the quality of the food vendors we invite to grill and sell our sausages. These select food vendors are very skilled and take great pride in serving Queen City Sausages to hungry festival visitors at family friendly prices.

Each food vendor is challenged to create something unique and creative from the wide range of Queen City Sausage products. There is no duplication among the vendors so delicious creativity drives the menus! Visit all the food booths for a complete selection of all menu items.

Here are just a few of the menu items we have so far! See you at the Queen City Sausage Festival!

  • The Zoomer: Lyle Yoest has been a Greater Cincinnati festival favorite for many years. Many years ago, Lyle was looking for something new to serve and created the now famous Zoomer.
