GatlinBurger Week is more than a burger festival- it is a culinary tour! If you love specialty burgers, then this week will be heaven for you. Many local restaurants will be creating deluxe burgers that will be available (a la carte) for the low price of $8. These gourmet burgers will be big and delicious, and they will showcase the signature style and flavors of the chefs that create them. Try one and you'll want to try them all!
To keep track of all the yummy burgers, download and print a GatlinBurger Week Passport, which will detail all of the restaurant burger names, descriptions and locations. If you collect three or more unique burger stamps from participating restaurants, then you can enter to win prizes! To enter, scan or photograph your passport and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail your passport to GatlinBurger Week, c/o Gatlinburg CVB, P.O. Box 527, Gatlinburg, TN 37738. A winner will be chosen through random drawing after the festivities conclude.
You can also win prizes if you share your burgers on social media. Take a picture of one of the featured burgers, tag the restaurant that made it, and hashtag it #GatlinBURGER for a chance to win some fun, free prizes!
