The burger: a delicacy of infinite varieties that (nearly) everyone has come to love. The burger was created at the Hamburg Fairgrounds in 1885; 100 years later, the first Burger Fest commenced to celebrate the birthday of the creation.
This year the festival will be held from noon to 11:45 p.m. on July 20 in the Village of Hamburg.
Presented by the Rotary Club of Hamburg, Hamburg Rotary, Sunrise Club, Town of Hamburg Lions Club, and the Hamburg Kiwanis Club.
The day will be filled with food from vendors, music and entertainment. There will be rides for kids, arts and crafts vendors, a KeyBank Classic Car Show, and a Labatt beer tent for the age appropriate adults.
What is a food festival without some type of eating competition? Uncle Joe’s Burger Eating Contest is a show not to miss.
See our next issue for the full lineup of events and more details.
