Delaware’s biggest battle between the buns returns this August in a new location but with the same mission: raising money for those in need at Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room. The Delaware Burger Battle will take place on Aug. 29, from noon to 3:30 p.m. on the grounds of the Cauffiel House, 1016 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington.
The Delaware Burger Battle, taking place annually on the last Saturday before Labor Day weekend, has become an end-of-summer tradition for burger lovers of all ages. Restaurants at the battle will offer unlimited samples of their best burgers, a panel of expert judges will select the Critic’s Choice Winner, and guests will vote on the People’s Choice Winner.
Last year, the Delaware Burger Battle raised $10,000 for the Ministry of Caring’s Emmanuel Dining Room. Over three years, burger battles have raised more than $21,000 for the Ministry of Caring. A list of competing restaurants will be released soon. All Burger Battle attendees enjoy all-you-can-eat burger samples. Beer and wine are included in the ticket price for adults, while soft drinks are available for children and designated drivers.
Early-bird tickets will soon be available on the Delaware Burger Battle website. Tickets are $44 through July 29 and $49 through Aug. 28. Tickets will be $60 at the door. Tickets for designated drivers and teens (ages 11-20) are $17, and tickets for children 10 and under are $7. For more information, visit www.deburgerbattle.com or facebook.com/deburgerbattle.
