Every year, the event is attended by more than 10 thousand people from several cities of the country, as well as guests from abroad. The aim of the “Riga Burger Festival” was always to show the burger not only as fast food, but as a cult food and a whole culture already integrated into modern cuisine.
From pl. From 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., following the anniversary festival program, there will be such activities as the “Influencer Show” with the participation of popular domestic bloggers, the “Hot Wings” competition, the “Burger Speeding” competition and many other events for visitors. Throughout the day, the best Latvian burger-making masters will compete for the title of “Festival’s best burger”.
– This year we are expecting guests and festival participants from other countries. We will try to do everything for the sake of the cause, so that the event becomes an international one, and it is a great honor that everything will take place right in the heart of Riga, or in the Esplanade square – says Edgars Svencis, the organizer of the “Riga Burger Festival”
At the closing ceremony of the festival, a traditional festive concert will be held, where local artists will participate. As the organizers themselves say, every year the audience gets to know the concert participants only during their performance on stage. In the history of the festival, such musicians as “Bad Habit”, Pētersons, the group “Keksi”, Normunds Rutulis and many others have already participated.
Entry to the event is completely free. The program and more information about the event is available on the official event page.
