About This Festival

From the Organizer

The San Diego Reader is pleased to invite you to the best burger bash in town! Join us on Saturday, September 10, 2022 at our 5th annual Reader Burgers & Beer event! This event will once again be held in beautiful Golden Hill Park. Try gourmet burgers from 20 of the best restaurants as they compete to win the "Best Burger" award. But what are burgers without beer to wash it down with? Enjoy beer tastings from 40+ local breweries. Curated exclusively by our food writers, this event brings together the very best burger vendors — and you decide who will ultimately win. Each attendee will be given a token to place in a voting box on the table of their favorite vendor. The vendor who receives the most tokens wins. While you eat your weight in burgers and bask in the San Diego sunshine, there will be live music, art demos and more. Choose from two ticket options: General Admission: 21+ only. Valid from 1PM-4PM and includes burgers from all vendors and tastings from all breweries (while supplies last). Discounted pre-sale tickets available for a limited time.  VIP Ticket: 21+ only. Valid from 12PM-4PM (early admittance) and includes burgers from all vendors and tastings from all breweries (while supplies last).  The party will be happening, rain or shine. Sorry, but infants, children, and pets will not be permitted. No refunds will be issued. Remember, no smoking in the park. **We are expecting a sold-out event, tickets may not be sold at the door. Please check back for updates.
