BurgerFest is Working its Meat Magic in Deep Ellum on Saturday, September 21

Carnivorous dreams do come true, thanks to the dudes who brought you the North Texas Taco Festival last month.

Rich Vana of Entrée Dallas, José Ralat-Maldonado of The Taco Trail and the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market’s Brandon Castillo and Laura Allen are putting away their taco hats to throw a burger festival that’ll highlight some of North Texas’ best patties. Just imagine: 20 vendors, live music, a beer garden, and a VIP lounge all within two blocks of Main Street. That’s double the area of the North Texas Taco Festival, if I’m correct. More room for all you happy feasters.

“BurgerFest will be held Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, 11 a.m.–5 p.m., on Main Street, alongside the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market and its 40 vendors. As with the North Texas Taco Festival, general admission will be free. For questions and sponsorship or vendor inquiries, please contact Rich Vana at 972-207-6696 or rich AT EntreeDallas dot com.
