Donna Meier – Our Holy Ghost Fair Stand was built on the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds approximately 30 years ago. It is a busy restaurant featuring fair food during our annual fair in July. We sell hot beefs, hamburgers and cheeseburgers, hot dogs, French fries, onion rings and many other fast food items.
Ten years ago our Chippewa Falls community started a German festival and now Oktoberfest has become extremely successful for our Holy Ghost food stand. We prepare potato dumplings late in Aug. with a large amount of volunteer help. We freeze the dumplings and then sell them along with a German, marinated and then roasted beef called sauerbraten. We also feature spanferkl which is roast pork.
Our stand is successful only with our parishioners support manning the various posts from dishwasher to cook to wait staff. Everyone is important. The co-chairs keep everything flowing but our help from those in the pews are the backbone.
