11th Annual National Hamburger Festival
Legend has it that it was two brothers from Akron, Ohio who created the hamburger back in 1885. On the final day of the New York State Fair in Hamburg, NY, Akron natives Frank and Charles Menches ran out of pork for the sandwiches they were vending from their concession booth. Thankfully, the pair found some ground beef, as well as a myriad of other ingredients, to create one of America’s most iconic foods – the hamburger.
More than 125 years later, the city of Akron salutes this all-American sandwich during the National Hamburger Festival. Each year for more than a decade, 20,000+ people converge onto Lock 3 in downtown Akron for a summer weekend of family fun featuring over 20 area eateries serving-up 50 different styles of hamburgers.
The festival is the brainchild of Drew Cerza President/CEO of Just Wing It Productions located in New York. As founder of the National Buffalo Wing Festival and the Road to Buffalo Tour, Cerza has a strong history of managing successful eventsView more
