about-hamburger-festivalIt’s just about time for the 11th Annual Taste of Hamburger Festival! Feel free to browse around… but be warned: you WILL get hungry. The Hamburger Festival takes place in Hamburg, PA situated in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. In 2012, our Hamburg-er Festival drew over 30,000 people from all over the east coast, and that’s because each year we beef up the festivities!

In fact, you really won’t want to miss this year’s festival. It will feature the 2014 PROFESSIONAL and Amateur Burger Eating Competition! On top of that, you can expect over 25 hamburger stands, 4 stages of non-stop entertainment, a beer and wine garden, numerous contests, a children’s petting zoo, folk and local art, and lots of other fun too! During the festival, don’t forget to stop by the hospitality table located at 335 State Street to pick up your festival guide, burger score cards for the People’s Choice Award, and brochures for local businesses and attractions in the area.


When you get to the festival, parking is available at the Hamburg Field House for a nominal fee. If you would prefer to find your own parking, sections of 3rd Street, 4th Street, State Street and Pine Street are closed to traffic and parking, but there are many streets that are open. We suggest that you get to the festival early because the spaces go quick!

Handicap Parking

There are 2 handicap parking designated lots located at the following locations:

  • Hamburg Field house on Pine Street – There are several handicapped spaces available on this lot, however, it is a two block walk to the festival area.
