Dutchess Stadium welcomes the BURGER & BEER BASH on August 17th!

Tickets for one of the summer’s most fun events, Hudson Valley Magazine’s annual Burger & Beer Bash are now on sale online. Dutchess Stadium, the home of the Hudson Valley Renegades, will be filled with the mouth-watering tastes of the best burgers in the Valley as the magazine hosts its 5th annual burger competition. The sell-out event is set for Thursday, August 17, from 6pm-10pm, and will feature sliders, music, beer, spirits and more. Regional restaurants are invited to participate in the occasion, and many will be on hand to serve up their best-tasting burgers to more than 1,200 guests who will then vote for the “Burger Champion.”

The annual Burger & Beer Bash just keeps getting bigger, better and more delectable than ever, as many local chefs compete hoping to be named the new Burger Champion! Check out the 2017 participating vendors so far! The beer will be flowing, the grills will be hot, and guests will enjoy it all, along with live music, and good company. So what are you waiting for?
