During the twentieth century, Bucyrus continued to grow. In 2000, just over thirteen thousand residents lived in the town. The community is home to an annual Bratwurst Festival, in celebration of the town's early German settlers. Nine percent of Bucyrus' residents twenty-five years of age or older had a four-year college degree in 2005. Many residents find employment producing machinery, steel vaults, rubber hose, and heavy road equipment.
