All Hail the Humble Hot Dog!


Celebrate all types of encased meat Aug. 11-13 at the Chicago History Museum’s Chicago Hot Dog Fest.

The Chicago-style hot dog is second to none – celebrating over 100 years as a much loved and celebrated part of Chicago’s local cuisine. The Chicago Hot Dog Fest celebrates its fifth year becoming the largest festival in the world to honor the red hot.

Chicago Hot Dog Fest 2017

More than 30,000 people attend to relish the interesting twists and unique red hot recipes from more than a dozen vendors, who are serving up both traditional and new, exciting takes on the standard. With more than 35,000 hot dogs served each year – there’s something on the menu for everyone.

While the Chicago-style hot dog is the star of this family friendly festival, you’ll get to know other styles along with a little history from speakers, fun from live bands, and activities for children all across three days. Byron’s Hot Dogs, Flashy Hot Dogs, Downtown Dogs, Chicago’s Dog House, and more will be providing their best hot dogs. Food and drinks are available for purchase using Dog Dollars. One normal dollar equals one Dog Dollar but you can purchase them at a 20-percent discount in advance.

Feeling full? Dance off some of the extra pounds with bands including the Polkaholics, Yoko & the Oh No’s, Funkadesi, and more.
