This year Le Burger Week Calgary will run from September 1 to September 7, so block off your calendar and get out those stretchy pants.

This annual event has been operating since 2012 when the inaugural week went down in Montreal. Now, Le Burger Week has events across Canada, in Haiti, and some US cities as well.

This year there are four Calgary eateries competing for the title of their city’s best burger. The winning creation is typically offered at a special “burger price” for the public to taste and cast their votes on leburgerweek.com.

There will be winning burgers in several categories including People’s Choice, Most Creative, and Healthiest Burger. The celebration also sends undercover tasters all over the country to choose which creation will earn the Judges’ Choice title.

Here are all the burgers you can eat during Le Burger Week Calgary 2018:
