Meat fans everywhere wept last November after finding out the Burger Festival Cardiff was cancelled (okay, maybe a more reasonable ‘got mildly annoyed’), but it’s meaty smiles all round as the festival makes its grand debut to DEPOT this March for all the patty-and-bun goodness we were deprived.
After being cancelled due to faulty equipment, they are back with contingencies in place to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Which is good, because they’ll be uniting some of the best independent burger traders from Cardiff and around it, bringing prime beef, pork, chicken, bacon, cheese and even a few bites for the vegan and vegetarians. There’s two sessions: one for the kiddos, featuring a bouncy castle and a face painter. The adult one, sadly, doesn’t have a bouncy castle, but does have rodeo sheep (!!!) along with games and competitions to win everything from drinks to free burgers and cash. If you want to work off all those burgers, you can expect a live Motown band and DJs to keep you dancing. And the best bit is that the event will be helping Welsh homelessness charity, Shelter Cymru. Now go eat burgers guilt-free.
Burger Festival Cardiff will go ahead on Saturday 3rd March at DEPOT, with the family session lasting 2pm to 6pm and costing between £3 - £7, and the over 18s session from 7pm till 11pm, and costing between £5 - £7.
