The fifth annual “Burger Wars” event, hosted by the Opelika Rotary Club, will take place along North Railroad Avenue in downtown Opelika on June 1, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees can purchase tasting tickets for $2 each, and can sample a burger from any of the 32 confirmed grillers for the event, as well as cast a vote for “Crowd Favorite.”

Grillers will compete in one of three divisions: professional (area restaurants or eateries), corporate, and tailgating.

Event proceeds will benefit food-insecure children at Southview Elementary in Opelika and Ogletree Elementary in Auburn through the Rotary’s partnership with the Food Bank of East Alabama’s “Backpack Program.”
