Hamburger Day

Hamburger Day celebrates the comfort food that is the classic burger as well as all plant-based patties. It was first observed by the National Hamburger Festival Association (NHFA) in New York City in 1933 and has been held annually since then.

It's unclear who was the inventor of our beloved burgers but the name is derived from the city of Hamburg in Germany. The beef patty we know and love today is said to be based on applications of beef sausage brought to America by German immigrants in the 1800s.
