Take a Burger Break…
This fun and quirky festival isn’t just about noshing on America’s favorite sandwich — it’s about celebrating it!
- Competitive Hamburger Eating Competitions
What would a food festival be without some competitive eating? The Ohio Hamburger Eating Championship features eight local eaters competing to consume the most one-pound burgers in just 10 minutes. The Akron Fire Department gets in on the action on Sunday, with new recruits competing in an eating contest, as well.
- Bobbing for Burgers
Take a break from the noshing to watch as goggle-adorned enthusiasts go Bobbing for Burgers, in which they dive head-first into a kiddy pool filled with ketchup to fish for burger patties.
- National Hamburger Festival Queen
Pageantry reigns supreme as we crown the National Hamburger Festival Queen!
- Baby Burger Contest
And, for the little ones, our Baby Burger Contest is a pint-size competition for children ages 2-5 .
