The best “meat-up” in Huntsville is coming to the Stone Event Center this summer at Campus No. 805.

It’s the first Rocket City Burger Battle on Saturday, July 13, soon to be the hottest ticket in town when Huntsville restaurants duke it out to determine who can make the BEST burger in Huntsville.

Each participating restaurant will be challenged to create their most non-traditional and tasty burger. A panel of celebrity judges will decide the winners and award cash prizes for best burger and most creative burger.

The best part? Burger fanatics get to join in the fun and help determine who’s bad to the bun by tasting and voting for a People’s Choice winner from an impressive, curated bracket of independently owned restaurants.

To wash down those juicy burgers, the Burger Battle will offer craft brews from Straight to Ale and Yellowhammer Brewing. It’s a day of mouth-watering deliciousness topped off with a beef-settling competition and music by Rocket 95.1 and Star 99.1.

General admission is free and burger-sampling tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Proceeds from the Burger Battle will benefit Free 2 Teach, a non-profit that provides free resources to teachers throughout Huntsville and Madison County.
