Hot Dog Day in Alfred


Event has ended

Hot Dog Day was founded by Alfred University students Mark O’Meara and Eric Vaughn in 1972 as a way to bring together Alfred University, Alfred State College, and the village of Alfred for the benefit of area charities and nonprofits. The event is held on a Saturday towards the end of April every year.

Typically the day involves many separate events run by different clubs, such as a 5k in the morning, parade down Main Street, live music, a festival and vendor fair held through the afternoon, and a Pine Hill Derby held the Friday before. Clubs and athletic teams usually participate in running the event, for Student Senate or volunteer service requirements.

This year the Festival will be held Saturday, April 20, 2024
