Louisville Burger Week 2020: What You Need To Know

It’s time for the 2020 Louisville Burger Week, which is in partnership with the Kentucky Beef Council! I can’t believe it is already back again this year; however, I’m ready. As y’all know, I consider myself to be a Burger Week Champion — and I look forward to maintaining my title this year. In this post, you’ll find all of the information that you need to make Burger Week a success!

This post is a collaboration with Kentucky Beef Council on behalf of the Beef Checkoff. I received compensation, but all opinions are my own.

Hey, y’all!

Louisville Burger Week 2020 — Let’s do it!

About Burger Week:

This is the fourth year of the event, which is something that I look forward to each and every year. While this year is different in the midst of COVID-19, fear not: we can still get out and enjoy $6 burgers all around the city! The 2020 Louisville Burger Week will be happening August 10th – August 16th; during this time, you’ll have 32 (!) burgers to try at restaurants around Louisville.

The Burger Week Passport:

As always, you’ll be able to travel with your passport to win prizes (digital download of the passport here). While different this year, downloading it online does make it easy to obtain; further, at the end of the week, you’ll have the ability to upload your stamped passport online here. If you collect 4 or more unique stamps from restaurants, you’ll be entered to win an Ultimate Grilling Prize Pack and Grill from @kybeef! How awesome is that?

FYI: Passports and website will indicate restaurants offering outdoor seating and to-go options.
