About Alberta Burger Fest

Alberta Burger Fest was founded in 2012(formerly YYC Burger Week) to provide local restaurants with the opportunity to win the best burger title in their chosen category and support great charities. It is also a chance for the public to support local restaurateurs and local ingredients. The rules have changed as well: There are now four categories, the $10, the $15 the $25 and the feature $50! 10% of the sale of their burger will go towards the assigned charity of their category.

The public will vote again for their favorite burgers, but there will be THREE winners, one for each category, plus an additional award for the Most Generous restaurant.
