Chicago Hot Dog Fest

The Chicago History Museum's celebration of one our city's signature dishes is back again, and it's still growing. This year, the festival expands to three days and welcomes sausage-slinging vendors like Chubby Wieners, Fatso's Last Stand, Frank Meats Patty and more. Cover bands will be serenading the encased meat consumption throughout the weekend and a Northwestern University professor will give a lecture entitled, “Ketchup: The Condiment of Controversy.”
