The National Hamburger Festival

The National Hamburger Festival is the brainchild of Drew Cerza President/CEO of the Just Wing It Productions located in New York. As founder of the National Chicken Wing Festival, and the Road to Buffalo Tour, Cerza has a history of successful event management across the country.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the National Hamburger Festival. An estimated 180,000 hamburger fans have enjoyed family fun, great entertainment and one of the largest assortments of hamburgers ever assembled in one place. The Food Network filmed the festival for a segment on their hit show “Unwrapped”. Local media, including television, radio and print are always on-site for the annual event. The citizens of Ohio and Akron Mayor Plusquellic embraced the festival with open arms making the event a great success. The festival is held at historic Lock 3 Park in beautiful downtown Akron. The festival raises money each year for one of Akron’s favorite charities, the Akron Children’s Hospital.
