For fans of the humble burger: a dedicated festival, aptly titled Burgerfest, is coming to Brisbane this October.

From 11am on Saturday October 21, Stone & Wood will team up with The Triffid, shutting down Stratton Street as Brisbane’s best burger joints move in for one day only.

Burgers will feature, of course, but so will performances including an appearance by Powderfinger frontman, Bernard Fanning for the final show of his Brutal Dawn tour. For those wanting to flex their burger-eating skills in public, there will be a burger eating competition.

The free event offers a strong line-up of burger heavyweights, with Ze Pickle, Miss Kay’s, Ben's Burgers, Mr Burger, 5 Boroughs, Red Hook, Lucky Egg and burgers from The Triffid heating up the competition.

Burgerfest is on October 21, 11pm–8pm in Brisbane. Tickets and details here.
