Are You Ready for National Hot Dog Day?

This Wednesday, we will be celebrating one of the most important days dedicated to hot dogs. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it’s National Hot Dog Day! This longtime tradition recognizing one of the greatest staples of American cuisine is celebrated by many yet perhaps just as many are unaware of how the informal holiday began.

Sure enough, National Hot Dog Day’s origins go all the way back to Coney Island in 1939 at Feltman’s Restaurant. Coney Island honored its most famous symbol by launching National Hot Dog Day. ''It is difficult to measure the contribution the hot dog has made to the fame and popularity of this great resort,'' one official said. ''Why, Coney Island is even shaped like a frankfurter!'' The event was large enough it was even attended by the late comedian and actor Milton Berle, who cemented his place in history as “Uncle Miltie”, the first major American television star. During the inaugural event, Berle proclaimed, ''Let our slogan be 'E Pluribus Hot Dog.'

Drop by Feltman’s this Wednesday and celebrate National Hot Dog Day with us!

This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island Hot Dogs, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the first hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the hot dog. Feltman’s hot dogs are free of nitrates and artificial ingredients, using all natural beef to create an experience that explodes with incredible, original flavor. For more information, please visit one of the locations in Brooklyn or Feltman’s Kitchen on St. Marks Place in the East Village to try some of the best hot dogs in the country.
