Bounce Houses

Visit our Members' booth or Kids Zone for kids (big and little) hot dog dress up!

The Museum Kid's Zone will feature fun history craft activities for everyone to enjoy!

Purchase a $7 all-access pass at the fest for the kids to have unlimited turns in our unique bounce houses! The festival features rides for little tykes and big kids alike.

Chicago Hot Dog Fest is the hottest fest around. But don't just take our word for it.

“We had a great time.  There was a great selection of vendors who had a wide variety of dogs and traditional Chicago dog--as they should! Chicago History Museum knows how to throw a party. ”

“I loved hot dog fest! There was a variety of foods not just hot dogs. The music was awesome and purchasing the tickets was pretty smooth. Would definitely recommend.”
