Happy Dog Hosts a Music-Filled Hot Dog Fest This Summer


  • Scene Archives Photo
Cleveland's Happy Dog knows a lot about making the perfect wiener. And this summer, they're hosting a huge Hot Dog Fest to celebrate all things cased-meat, music and sunshine.

Hitting up the Detroit-Shoreway establishment June 15, Hot Dog Fest is just another food-themed festival coming to the lineup this summer (along with festivals dedicated to pickles, pizza and beer).

Roping off part of the street for this, the event takes place in the parking lot shared by Happy Dog and the Angel Printing. Attendees can also expect a dunk tank and, for those with extra-stretched stomachs, a hot dog eating contest.

So far, the band/DJ lineup includes the following:
Tough Shits
David Nance
Long Hots
Pleasure Leftists
Lisa Bella Donna
Heavenly Queen
The Dreemers
Oregon Space TRail Of Doom
Powers/Rolin Duo

The event kicks off at 2 p.m. and rolls through midnight. Admission is $12 all day long. Find out more right here.
