Battle of the Burgers will be on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the Pechanga Resort Casino. Local restaurants will compete for the best burger while culinary high school students pair with twelve Pechanga chefs to create their custom loaded fries. The students will be the executive chefs for the day, while Pechanga chefs will be their sous chefs.




Temecula Valley Unified School District Career Technical Education (CTE) students will volunteer and the third-year students will compete. This is a fundraising event for the culinary program available through the school district. Proceeds will be used for the students to receive food handler cards and earn certifications.

Four hundred attendees are expected. They will sample the burgers and loaded fries from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. The winners will be announced about 2:45 p.m. during the event, and posted at VisitTemeculaValley.com/battle-of-the-burgers.

Tickets are $20 online, or $25 at the door until sold out. Students and seniors are $15, kids under five are free. Tickets are on sale now.
