The Festival’s beloved Burger Bash® is back with successful chef, restaurateur, author, beloved TV personality, and 2018 SOBEWFF® Tribute Dinner honoree Bobby Flay presiding as host! Flay is no stranger to culinary competitions, whether he’s hosting or competing, and we’ve tapped the award-winning Food Network fan-favorite to keep the ultimate celebration of everyone’s favorite mouth-watering creation between two buns at a maximum for this year’s Heineken Burger Bash presented by Schweid & Sons.

Whose burger reigns supreme? The choice is yours as you cast your vote for the Heineken People’s Choice Award!

An esteemed panel of judges, including the youngest-ever MasterChef finalist Nick DiGiovanni, NBC 6’s Kelly Blanco, photographer & journalist Manny Hernandez, Telemundo 51’s Mariana Rodriguez, Miami New Times’ Food & Drink editor Laine Doss, WSVN 7’s Belkys Nerey, CBS 4’s Lisa Petrillo, and Univision’s Raúl De Molina, will decide who will receive this year’s coveted Schweid & Sons® The Very Best Burger Award.

Honoring our commitment to ensuring the health and safety of our staff, talent, attendees, sponsors, participants, and community, this event will be split into two sessions this year. Both sessions will have the same chefs, wine & spirits, and sponsors, but the capacity will be greatly reduced from that of previous years. Your ticket is valid only during the session you purchase, and will not grant you access to the other session.

All proceeds from the Festival benefit the students of the Florida International University Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management who assist Festival organizers in all aspects, including Festival planning, logistics and overall execution.
