Welcome to BurgerFest Dallas!
From the team that brought you the North Texas Taco Festival comes a city-wide (and beyond!) celebration of that other handheld meal: the hamburger. With more than a dozen different burger joints and restaurants selling bite-sized versions of their take on the hamburger, a beer garden, ice cream and dessert vendors and live music, BurgerFest will be a day-long chance to sample the wide range of some of the best burgers Dallas - and even Ft. Worth and Denton! - have to offer. Among the vendors at the festival will be The Rodeo Goat, Maple and Motor, Ten Bells Tavern, and Whiskey Cake. And that's just the beginning - stay tuned for more announcements as the festival approaches by following us on Facebook and Twitter!
Somebody Said Something About Beer
And that somebody was right. Anvil Pub will be serving in our beergarden in the old Ruby Room space; the massive patio will provide plenty of opportunity to drink and devour the burgers!
Where's The Party?
BurgerFest will be held at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market over two blocks in Deep Ellum. It will be located on Main Street between Good-Latimer and Crowdus Street. The festival will begin at 11 a.m. and will last until 5 p.m.
How Much Are The Burgers?
The burgers, which will be sold in sliders or quarter-burger form, should generally range from between $1.50-$3.00, giving everyone an opportunity to try several different burgers from around the city and suburbs for not a lot of cash! Some vendors may be just outside this range, but if so, it won't be by much.
