Welcome to Burgerfest 2016!
Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13, 2016
Burgerfest is an amazing volunteer-run festival that raises funds for scholarships and community projects in the Home of the Hamburger, Seymour, Wisconsin. It draws people from around the world for small town fun with a big attitude!
Seymour, Wisconsin, is an idyllic community of about 3,000 located in the heart of dairy country 15 miles west of Green Bay. Burgerfest started in 1989 to celebrate the birth of the burger in Seymour in 1885. The historical figure, Hamburger Charlie, invented the hamburger way back then and Americans bit on the hamburger craze!
Events start on Friday and take place at 2 locations:
Downtown Seymour - Burgerfest
Downtown Seymour hosts the World's Largest Hamburger Parade, Bun Run, Kids' Run, music, kids' games, the Thickburger Eating Contest and the Krazy Ketchup Slide!
