#HBGVeggieFest Challenge: Faux Burger Showdown presented by The Hilton Harrisburg

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.
