Dec 19 2017, 11:23 am

We knew it was going to be epic, but the 2016 Alberta Burger Fest, aka the YYC Burger Battle, is shaping up to be beyond epic.

With 104 burgers in three price ranges ($10, $15, $20) along with dessert burgers and burger-themed events, there’s a lot of hot burger action about to go down in Calgary and Southern Alberta.

An impressive 104 battlers have been chosen by the team at Alberta Burger Fest, and word is getting out as many participating restaurants are hitting social media to share their creations.

You’re likely to recognize some of your favourite spots around town in the $10 category, but look for other exciting creations coming from restaurants that specialize in all sorts of cuisines stepping up to the plate with some fun creations.


Seriously, these are going to be pretty insane–and that’s just a small taste!

Among the other fun features are dessert burgers, a burger bus, a burger crawl, and a burger demo and tasting event on May 15 doubling as a fundraiser. The Alberta Burger Fest team is still getting all the final details of the burgers and events up on their site, so stay tuned to that space, as well as their Twitter and Facebook for updated info.
