About

Goetta, a German dish pronounced "get-uh", is often compared to breakfast sausage or scrapple and is a mixture of pork, beef, steel-cut (pinhead) oats, and seasonings. Glier's Goettafest is a four-day celebration of the local favorite held along Newport's riverfront just down the steps from the Newport Aquarium and Newport on the Levee. In addition to eating goetta in variety of dishes, festival goers can enjoy live music and cloggers, plus goetta games like Goetta Slide and Goetta Ring Toss.
