This new signature Hudson Valley Magazine event brings together all the greatest elements of summer: juicy burgers, cold beer, live music and competition. The Burger and Beer Bash will host 15 local restaurants whose specialty includes burgers.

The Hudson Valley’s top burger restaurants will gather together this summer at the beautiful Shadows Marina waterfront in Poughkeepsie to grill up delicious food and battle for who has THE BEST BURGER IN THE HUDSON VALLEY. The beer will be flowing, the grills will be hot, and guests will enjoy it all along with live music, great views of the river, and good company.

Proceeds from the event will benefit a local charity in the Hudson Valley region.
