22 July

All of July is National Hot Dog Month in America, co-sponsored by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, headquartered in Washington, DC, and the American Meat Institute (AMI.)

The exact day of Hot Dog Day can vary from year to year; some years the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council declares it to be on 21 July.

They sponsor the annual Hot Dog Lunch on Capitol Hill in Washington. All the government people swoop in for a free lunch.

The Council encourages others around America to hold a Hot Dog Lunch as well, and issue sample guidelines that your local mayor can use in proclaiming the day. Events can include making fancy and novelty hot dogs, hot dog eating contests, etc.

Why not celebrate the day by treating someone to a hot dog? If you want to try something different, then learn about "Hot-Dogs du Lac" and "Montreal Steamies."

CooksInfo.com has a lot of reading material on all kinds of hot dogs, and their history, to get you into the mood of things for today.

Note: some people say, quite erroneously, that Hot Dog Day is 10 September.
