Hot DogOur Tri-State area is home to an unusually large number of hot dog businesses…many decades-old, family-owned, drive-in or traditional eatery businesses that shine as beloved, true traditions to us and to visitors from all over the world! We celebrate this unique part of our region…and happily showcase them at our annual WV Hot Dog Festival!

We invite you to come to downtown Huntington, WV (named 2017’s AMERICA’S BEST COMMUNITY!), on the last Saturday in July each year, as we collect a dozen of the area's top hot dog businesses, and invite “famous” hot dog businesses from around the state, put them in one location, all working together to raise money for the children in our region under treatment for cancer and other life-threatening illness, through our important partnership with Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital.

Your Little DogWe welcome you, your family, and the family dog, to come to our annual WV Hot Dog Festival to enjoy contests and competitions, live music and entertainment all day, displays, prizes, demonstrations, arts & crafts, shopping, car and truck shows, carnival rides, and to sample all of these wonderfully delicious hot dogs (as much as you can eat!) in one location for the entire day at Pullman Square, and 3rd Avenue, downtown Huntington.

Come treat yourself (and your little dog too!) to our annual WV Hot Dog Festival (always the last Saturday in July each year)!

July is national hot dog month, and it’s a great way to celebrate this unique and delicious aspect of our region! People who grew up in this area, but have moved away, are now planning mini-vacations and to visit family still in the region each July, so everyone can have a day at the WV Hot Dog Festival together…eating the hot dogs they so fondly remember, and sampling newcomers!

Pullman SquareThere’s something for everyone and every age: Bun Run 10K & 5K (and 5K charity walk); Buns on Bikes (bicycle tour of Huntington); All-breed dog costume contest & Pooch Parade; All-breed dog races (by weight class); annual Wiener Dog Races at High Noon; Hot Dog Eating Contest; Root Beer Chuggin’ Contest; Bun Fun Games for the kids and family; Classic & Custom Car & Truck Show; Inflatables for the kids; Carnival Rides for all ages; and great LIVE ENTERTAINMENT all throughout the day!

If you’re from out of state, or out of region, YOU, too, are sure to find some great hot dogs you’ll never forget! You’ll have a wonderful time in our city, and loads of fun at our WV Hot Dog Festival! If you’re a hot-dog lover….we roll out the red carpet to YOU…where have you been?! You’ll have a ball!
