Art Design Chicago will be hosting an Art Cart from 11:00AM--2:00PM on Sunday in celebration of the 125th birthday of the Chicago-style hot dog which premiered at the World's Columbian Exposition.
Muralist and hot dog-painter extraordinaire, Jeff Zimmermann will be on hand to teach you how to draw the very best Chicago-style dog.

Happy 125th birthday, Chicago-style Hot Dog!

Chicago Hot Dog Fest is the hottest fest around. But don't just take our word for it.

“We had a great time.  There was a great selection of vendors who had a wide variety of dogs and traditional Chicago dog--as they should! Chicago History Museum knows how to throw a party. ”

“I loved hot dog fest! There was a variety of foods not just hot dogs. The music was awesome and purchasing the tickets was pretty smooth. Would definitely recommend.”
