    Celebrate the City’s Favorite Food with the Chicago History Museum
    #ChicagoHotDogFest

    Take a bite out of Chicago history at the fifth annual Chicago Hot Dog Fest, presented by the Chicago History Museum. The Fest returns to Lincoln Park this August to include a full lineup of bands, hot dog history speakers and the star of the event - Vienna Beef hot dogs prepared in various regional and ethnic styles by the city’s top hot dog vendors.

    WHAT
    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.

    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 fans fill up on mouthwatering encased meats, cold beer and decadent desserts, a tasty lineup of local and touring bands will take the Main Stage to keep the party moving. Hot dog historians, epicureans and authors will provide fascinating fun facts and stimulating presentations on the Speaker Stage, while family-friendly performances entertain the youngsters throughout the weekend. Be sure to bring your dog too for a visit at the Pup Tent where they can cool off and grab a treat.
