Building Tomorrow's Annual Indy Burger Battle

Indianapolis, IN
Event Phone: 317-632-3545



August 10, 2013 to August 9, 2020

Eat burgers. Crown the best. Support education.

Restaurants from all over Indianapolis will serve you their own set of signature sliders and you get to try each of them to decide whose is the most scrumptious. At the end of the 10-day battle, your vote will determine the People's Choice Champion to crown the best burger in Indianapolis.

All proceeds from Indy Burger Battle ticket sales will benefit event organizer and Indianapolis-based nonprofit Building Tomorrow and its vision of a world where all children have access to an inclusive, transformative education.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s Indy Burger Battle will have an exciting new format allowing ticketholders to sample burgers via restaurant dine-in or carry-out. Building Tomorrow will sell tickets to a burger “passport”, valid for two slider-sized burgers from participating restaurants. Restaurants will serve their sliders during normal business hours, through dine-in or carry-out, and beverages and sides will be available for additional purchase.

  1. Buy your virtual burger "passport" online here. Early Bird tickets are available for $35.

  2. Dine-in or carry-out at one of 10 (and counting!) participating restaurants between July 31 and August 9.

  3. Display your virtual "passport" to the server or cashier and receive 2 free sliders.

  4. Purchase additional drinks and sides to support local business as they bounce back from COVID-19 restrictions.

  5. Visit as many restaurants as you can—your passport gets you sliders at all of them.

  6. Cast your vote for your favorite burger by August 9. Voting will open online July 31.

Tickets: $35.
