Best Memphis Burger Fest – The Best Memphis Burger Festival is an annual hamburger cooking competition and music festival raising awareness and support for animal care and rescue organizations around the Memphis area. Over the past two years, we’ve raised over $13,000 for animal care organizations and awarded close to $6000 in cash and trophy prizes to teams representing local restaurants, caterers, chefs and back yard BBQ guys. Each year the festival seems to get bigger with more teams and sponsors getting involved.

Read below for the top 8 reasons you don’t want to miss out on the fun and excitement at this great event! Best Memphis Burger Fest began in 2012 as a series of hamburger cook-off competitions, an eating competition, local live music, celebrity judging, activities for kids, and more.
In between competitions, local talent cooked samples for the public in return for small donations to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services. In its first year, Best Memphis Burger Fest had over 1500 attendees present and raised close to $5500 for Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services.
Additionally, over $3000 in cash prize money and trophies was awarded to winning teams. The event went over so well, the World Food Championships, held in Las Vegas, sanctioned the event and invited the grand champion out to compete against the world’s best cooks. We look to continue this great momentum again this September as we grow the number of teams that will be cooking and aim to make an even larger contribution to Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services.
