ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Burgerfest is a two-day unique, food-cultural festival regularly held at the Exhibition Grounds in Holešovice, Prague 7 under the auspices of the US Embassy in Prague. His history has been written since 2012 and we are currently the biggest burger festival in Europe. We present the culinary art of selected burger houses not only from Prague, but also from the whole Czech Republic and abroad. The main partner for the past couple of years is the ambassador of the finest Tennessee whiskey – Jack Daniel’s. We also have support from the world’s best known BBQ Pit Boys – BBQ Pit Boys  from the US and their chapters who regularly take part in our BBQ shows.

Before the Burgerfest, burger was perceived as a fast and not very good fast food. Our mission was to prove that just the traditional American food, such as the burger, has a place in quality cousine. So almost seven years ago, we introduced the gourmet burger trend and many good burger houses every year. The ever-increasing popularity of this delicacy shows us that the direction was right and especially meaningful. The Burger is incredibly versatile, the basis is always high-quality meat made from local and fresh ingredients, proper flavor, bulk from your own baker, and along with preparation right on the spot before your eyes and nose, it will add the right taste and atmosphere. At the festival, we also think of vegetarians and with glutan free diet.

7-8th of September 2019 – 8th edition of Jack Daniel’s presents Burgerfest

“Every year we want to move Burgerfest further up, to present all the grill trends that move the world. Therefore, this year it will be worth it. Over the past few years, thanks to visitors, we have managed to create an event in the heart of Europe that is world famous and sought after. Traditionally, we have a lot of activities ready, so you can play American football, ride in the American Humvee or compete and win a caravan for a week. And why are we all doing this? Because In beef we trust! ”Says Zdeněk Střížek, the founder, visionary, chef and globetrotter in one person.

What’s new this year –  the special BBQ Contest according to the rules of KCBS, which is the largest competitive BBQ organization in the world based in Kansas, USA. European teams will compete in four BBQ disciplines over the weekend for the BBQ champion. We also have a little tasting of the program, full of fine music from bands like Lake Malawi, Oli Alchemy or Sendwitch. Cooking show performed by grill masters from all over the world, but also from our star chefs. For example BBQ show by Ted Reader or the captain of the Czech national culinary team of chefs and confectioners Honza Horký, who shows his skills together with the German grill master Karel Heinz from Munich. There will be performances of the guys from Na Stojáka (Czech famous stand-up comedy) and popular competitions and much more. Oh, and don’t forget to take all the children with you, not only will be there “Kašpárek v rohlíku”(czech famous kids band), but there will be a lot of fun for them in Primáčkova kids zone, so you can enjoy your food and drink in peace.
