6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Thursday evening’s dinner is highlighted by the incredible German food prepared and presented by local iconic restaurant Schmidt’s Sausage Haus.
Schmidt’s first ventured into the concession business in 1914, when George L. Schmidt opened a stand at the Ohio State Fair. Today, the Schmidt’s food booth is the second oldest food concessionaire at the state fair and is still among the most popular.
The first Schmidt’s restaurant opened in 1967 just around the corner from the Schmidt’s meat packing plant in German Village. Using meat recipes from the packing days and dessert recipes from the German ladies hired to run the kitchen, Schmidt’s Sausage Haus became an instant success and is still a landmark eatery in Central Ohio.
Today, the family tradition of day-to-day operations of this uniquely diverse hospitality company is carried out by the fourth generation of the Schmidt family. The Schmidt name is recognized throughout central Ohio and the nation as a leader in quality specialty restaurants, catering and unequaled banquet facilities as well as retail sales and fair and festival food services. Schmidt’s has been nationally featured on the Travel Channel’s “Man vs. Food” (see video below) and on the Food Network.
