Seymour, Wisconsin Historical Events

2001, August 4
Again...the world's largest Hamburger belongs to Seymour!
Seymour will once again be able to claim the world record for producing the largest hamburger after cooking an 8,266 pound burger at Burger Fest, Saturday, August 4, 2001. The new record is more than one ton heavier that the current record holder, cooked up in 1999 in Saco, Montana. The new record will be complete as soon as it is verified by the Guinness Book of World Records. Next year's Burger Fest will be held August 3, 2002, so mark your calender.

In 1989, Seymour grilled the world's biggest hamburger, 5,520 lbs. at the Outagamie County Fairgrounds. The record is verified in the Guiness Book of World Records.

Seymour is the Home of the Hamburger
The hamburger sandwich was invented at the Seymour Fair, now the Outagamie County Fair, in the 1880s, by Charles Nagreen. Seymour holds a yearly Hamburger Festival the first Saturday of August.
