VeggieFest Challenge: Faux Burger Showdown
presented by Ad Lib Craft Kitchen + Bar

This year, we’re pitting local restaurants against one another to show off their vegan faux burger creations.

Local restaurants will prepare and cook their version of a faux burger for three local judges to claim the title of Best Local Faux Burger!

Burgers span every style from the Impossible Burger to black bean burgers.

This isn’t just for the judges. All event attendees will be able to sample each faux burger for themselves to see who they think offers the best meatless creation around.
