BURGERS
STOCKHOLM BURGER FEST | HORNSTULLS MARKNAD
28/5

It is time for BurgerDudes “Stockholm Burger Fest 2016”. During a three hour burger feast starting at 18:00 you can eat and vote on burgers from six of Swedens best food trucks. This is what Toby Lee of BurgerDudes has to say about the event:
“BurgerDudes have traveled the world in search of the perfect burger, and 70 of our 160+ reviews on Burgerdudes.se are reviews on burgers in Stockholm. Now we want to give something back to our fantastic capital city, and therefore we have collected six of the country’s premier food trucks so that Stockholmers can help us determine who is the best of the best!”

Six teams, including Gamla Stans Yacht Club, Royal Swedish Yacht Club, New York Yacht Club, Royal Thames Yacht Club, Royal Yacht Squadron and Yacht Club Costa Smeralda will go bow to bow in search of lifting the famous trophy. If you are a fan of the seas then you can join the Victorina for a closer view, or even have a fancy dinner with all the competitors on the evening of the 28th. IF all that sounds a bit too much then simply get down to the coast and watch the boats fight furiously with the winds and battle for position in the race for the all important win.
