National Hamburger Festival

When: Sat., Aug. 12 2017

Now in its 12th year, the National Hamburger Festival keeps upping the ante and adding more activities. This year's event takes place today and tomorrow at Akron's Lock 3 and features more than 50 styles of hamburgers served by more than a dozen mostly independent eateries. This year also marks the debut of the first-ever Akron Ninja Challenge. Hamburger-inspired activities include "bobbing for burgers" and the crowning of the Burger Queen. The Buck Naked Band, Justin Fabus, Shooter Sharp & the Shootouts, the Rhythm Syndicate and the King Bees will perform. Buckeye Brewfest returns for the second year and features dozens of beers from more than 10 craft breweries. Tickets to the Hamburger Festival, which include admission to Buckeye Brewfest, are $5.
