Independence Day is the most important secular holiday held in the United States. Americans take

July 19 th National Hot Dog Day

National Hot Dog Day seeks to appreciate hotdogs. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council

created the National Hot Dog Day to honor the all-American hot dog. The first National Hot Dog

Day was held in 1991, where a hot dog luncheon was served on Capitol Hill. Since then, it has

become tradition to serve hot dogs to Capitol Hill staffers, lawmakers, agency officials and baseball


Frankfurters, which are very similar to hot dogs, originated in Frankfurt, Germany. In the 1880s,

Antonioni Feuchtwanger began to sell hot dogs in St. Louis, Missouri. Eventually by the 1890s, it is

believed that Chris Vonderahe, a German immigrant who owned the St. Louis Browns, began to sell

hotdogs at baseball games. Since then, hotdogs have been deeply rooted in American baseball

culture. To honor the association between baseball and hotdogs, the American Meat Institute

invites baseball players to attend the annual hotdog luncheon on Capitol Hill during National Hot Dog

Day on July 23rd.
