Genesee Country Village & Museum—the largest living history museum in New York State—is hosting its annual Kohlfahrt on Saturday, February 10 and Sunday, February 11 to celebrate cabbage (kohl).

Are you interested in attending a Kohlfahrt? We’ve pulled together the following download for Rochester's only traditional German cabbage walk.

The event starts with a guided nature walk (fahrt) with games including a cabbage relay and Brussels sprout shooting competition, a “Booze Wagen” with samples of German beer, wine, hard cider, and schnapps, and a hearty Grünkohlessen German meal.
