Le Burger Week Calgary is going down this year from September 1 to September 7, so block off your calendar and get out those stretchy pants.
For 2017, Le Burger Week has gone national and will be taking place in six provinces and 11 cities including Montreal, Quebec City, Cornwall, Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, and Vancouver.
This means almost 400 restaurants across the nation will simultaneously be serving a unique burger competing to be the best in their respective city.
- 5 local Calgary butcher shops to help you beef up your BBQ game
- The first annual Prairie-inspired dinner series is coming to Calgary next month
- There's a FREE outdoor vegan food festival coming to Calgary this fall
- Here's what to expect from Calgary's first ever cocktail festival
This annual event has been operating since 2012, when the inaugural week went down in Montreal with 20,000 participants. Now, Le Burger Week even has events across Canada, in Haiti, and in a few US cities including Buffalo, Cleveland, and Omaha.
Le Burger Week invites the public to head into participating restaurants (or order via Skip The Dishes, if the establishment offers it) and vote online for their favourite burger.
Each restaurant will be offering a special “burger price” for participants to get in on so they can try them all.
