A BIG thanks to the Bakalars Sausage company for sponsoring WIENERFEST for the past 10 years!
WIENERS - MUSIC - BEER
We do it the first Saturday of May. Sometimes the weather is beautiful, sometimes it rains. One thing is assured though,...we're DONE with winter! It's time get out and celebrate spring with a giant wiener, live music and cheap beer!
The average American eats 50 hot dogs every year.
Hot dogs were of the first food eaten on the moon. Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. ate hot dogs on their 1969 journey.
Nearly 90 percent of hot dog eaters choose mustard as their go-to topping. In Chicago, they like to use cucumber, tomato, pickle, onion and pickle relish and in Los Angeles they use mayonnaise and cheese. #weirdos
While it is often thought that hot dogs are the all-American food, they were first invented in 1484 in Frankfurt, Germany. (fitting that some clowns from Oktoberfest came up with this party, eh?)
