World's Largest Hamburger

In 1982 Rutland hosted the “Grand Daddy of All Celebrations” when it went into the Guinness Book of World Records with the cooking and eating of the World’s Largest Hamburger. That year, between 8-10,000 people came to sample the tasty 3591 pound burger. One half of the grill is still on display at Sanderson Field in Rutland.

A DVD documentary from the 1982 Guinness World Record feat of the world's largest flipped hamburger is available to buy for $10.00 (plus postage) from the Rutland Community Club. The DVD can also be purchased at City Hall. For more information send an email to
