These are the insane burgers you can try during Le Burger Week Vancouver


Le Burger Week, the Montreal-based week-long celebration of the best and most outrageous burgers, returns to Vancouver for seven days of deliciousness.

Taking place September 1 to 7, several Vancouver restaurants have signed up with their burgers that will be available that week for your eating–and voting–pleasure.

Launched in 2012, the annual event has brought burger lovers together in numerous Canadian cities since 2017, when the fest expanded to include Montreal, Quebec City, Cornwall, Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon and, Vancouver.

This year, Vancouver has nine participating restaurants, including some that have created some pretty epic burgers for the fest. We’ve got the details on the burgers from the participating restaurants, and we’ll put in an update if more burgers get on the line-up.
