Virtual Kalamazoo Hot Dog Walk – Eating hot dogs for a great cause

Posted on April 24th, 2020

If you didn’t know that Kalamazoo was a hot dog town, now you can find out for yourself by participating in the 10th Annual Kalamazoo Hot Dog Walk!


Normally celebrated as a pub-crawl-style event – hopping around from hot dog joint to hot dog joint in town and tasting all of the wonderfully unique and different dogs offered in Kalamazoo – this year the event is going virtual!


Beginning on Saturday, April 25, participants can register for a 10th Annual Kalamazoo Hot Dog Walk Passport that will provide one hot dog at each location. Now you have the flexibility to plan the Kalamazoo Hot Dog Walk in the way that best fits you! Either space it out until 2021, or go to all six in one day!


The $50 registration fee also includes an official 10th Annual Kalamazoo Hot Dog Walk t-shirt, a water bottle (first 100 to register), and a much needed donation to Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes. Last year the KHDW was able to donate over 15,600 meals to Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes!


A day to pickup your items will be established as soon as it is safe to do so.


Some of the 2020 Kalamazoo Hot Dog Walk Passport Stops Include:
