A Massive Burger Fest In Tampa Is This Spring

Have you ever found yourself craving a large, juicy burger? If the answer to that question is “yes,” you may be stoked to discover which restaurant has the best burger in the Tampa Bay area. The good news is that we'll be able to find out who does soon thanks to a massive burger fest in Tampa at Madeira Beach this spring. 

On April 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the first-ever Mad Burger Fest will bring together a number of local chefs in a competition to see who makes the yummiest burger.

Regardless of what the judges say, get ready to sink your teeth into some delicious food and decide for yourself who the winner is!

We still don’t have a complete list of participants, but we do know that The Whoopie Pie Guys will be there to provide the sweeter side of the bun life.

Renegade Burger Company will also be around dishing out some thick patties loaded with their specialty toppings. Is your stomach growling yet?

The best part of all of this is that entry to the festival is totally free! Yes, you read that right. Grab your bae, your bestie or your whole squad and wander from stand to stand to observe culinary mastery without breaking the bank.

The price of the actual burgers will depend on the chef, but rest assured that the proceeds for the event will be donated to ROC park.

In other words, you'll basically be eating for a good cause. 

Once you've officially eaten one too many burger bites, don't despair! 

The festival is actually located at the stunning ROC park, which means that you can wander the area and take in stunning bay views.

Munch on a burger, sample some whoopie pies and then watch the waves. Is there a chiller way to spend an afternoon?

There will also be a bunch of free activities on site, like live music and a vintage car show, where you can snap photos with gorgeous old cars that will make you feel like you are living in the '60s.

You and your friends can chill out, rest your stomachs and jam out to some tunes, as you walk among the old cars. Who knows, by the time you're done strolling around, you may be ready to eat more! 

Whether you are looking to relax after a long night or trying to soak up a bit of sun before the start of the week, this is an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
