The ultimate burger festival

Novemburger was launched in 2014 as a way to bring new business to the amazing restaurants of Hamilton, while raising funds for the United Way in our community. The festival was an instant hit, and the 31 participating restaurants sold nearly 7000 burgers in only 30 days! Since then, the festival has grown each year, selling over 37,000 burgers to date. This year, we’re thrilled to have 70 restaurants participating in Hamilton and Burlington!

Here’s how it works. Each participating restaurant creates a unique signature burger as their entry into the festival, which is then dubbed their Novemburger. Then YOU get to go eat Novemburgers and rate them (right on this site!) for 30 days. When the dust/deliciousness settles, two winners are announced: one for the most Novemburgers sold, and one for Novemburger of the Year.

Go get your Novemburger on!
