For the first time in Saskatchewan, Downtown Saskatoon will be hosting it’s very first Le Burger Week.

Le what?

Le burger week. Sorry, our mouths were full. It’s a week long festival that celebrates the best burgers in Canada, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it. Beginning in Montreal six years ago, the festival now generates over 150,000 participants in cities including: Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Quebec City, Ottawa, Calgary, Cleveland, Buffalo–and now Saskatoon! Not only does our city have a thriving culinary scene, but in our humble opinion, it ranks as one of the best. Downtown Saskatoon is so ready to show that off in a big, national way.

Still don’t get it? The idea is to eat as many burgers as you can over the course of the week (September 1st-7th), share your experiences on social media, and vote, using the Le Burger Week website and app. How can you go wrong, really? It’s an interactive food festival that connects people to food–particularly mouth watering burgers, created special for this event. Do we have your attention yet?

Here’s some shots of Nathan from Sticks & Stones restaurant giving us a sneak peak of his original Le Burger Week burger.
