If you’re a hot-dog lover, don’t miss National Hot Dog Day on July 20, 2022. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council created National Hot Dog Day in the early ’90s, and dubbed the month of July National Hot Dog Month. (It’s also National Ice Cream Month.) National restaurants and hot-dog chains celebrate by offering discounted or free hot dogs, perfect for a frugal summer celebration.
Check out the restaurants and other businesses offering hot dog deals in 2022. Given they have the entire month to chow down on wieners and chili dogs, some deals may be valid for more than the day itself.
This year’s deals haven’t been announced, but keep checking for updates, as this roundup will be updated periodically.
