Chicago History Museum Hosts 5th Annual Hot Dog Festival
While Chicago continues to impress with new restaurant openings and pushing the envelope to be the epicenter of good food in the country, Chicago will always be known for their deep-dish and hotdogs. So lucky for us we get to have the best of both worlds: top cuisine and comfort foods. In honor of what might be Chicago’s most beloved food the Chicago History Museum is hosting their 5th annual Hot Dog Fest.
The 3-day celebration of encased meats kicks off in Lincoln Park at the corner of Stockton and LaSalle Dr. very close to the Chicago History Museum this Friday. Vendors from all around the city will be there to fill you up with a Chicago classic.
Music and guest speakers will also be there throughout the 3-day fest to provide entertainment along with good food. A $5 suggested donation will be taken at the festival entrance and proceeds will go towards educational programming at the Chicago History Museum.
At the festival “Dog Dollars” or food tickets must be purchased in exchange for food. No cash will be exchanged directly to vendors. Discounted early-bird food ticket packages are available on their website.
Hours of festival:
Friday, August 11 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday, August 12 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday August 13 from 11 am to 8 p.m.
