How many burgers do I get to eat?
Each ticket entitles the ticket holder to sample one burger from each competing restaurant. We expect around 15 restaurants to compete this year.
What if I know I won't eat all the burgers, can I split a ticket with a friend?
Only 1 person per ticket will be allowed entrance. Just like you can't split the purchase of a restaurant buffet, we don't allow splitting tickets for this event. And we promise, you will fill up here more than at any restaurant buffet.
Will there be drinks available to wash down all these burgers?
Yes, every VIP Battle ticket comes with TWO free drink tickets, and every Regular Battle ticket comes with ONE free drink ticket. A drink ticket may be redeemed for 1 pour of beer from one of our brewery partners (must be at least 21 years old and show valid ID) or 1 non-alcoholic drink (bottled water and assorted soda) from our other drink partners. Additional beer, water and soda will be available for purchase. You may also bring in your own water in a clear container only; no other outside beverages will be allowed.
Do I have to be a certain age to attend?
Nope! All ages are welcome to experience the event. However, you must be at least 21 years old and present a valid ID to receive your free drink ticket(s) and enter the beer garden. Children under the age of 6 do not need a ticket to enter.
When can I enter the event?
VIP ticket holders may enter the event starting at 12 pm on event day. All other regular & youth ticket holders may enter the event starting at 1 pm. No early entry is allowed.
How do I enter the event? Do I print my ticket or bring it on my phone?
The entrance to the event will be on the corner of Illinois St. and W. Georgia St. in Downtown Indianapolis
. You may either print your ticket or show it on your phone to be scanned and enter the event.
Can I buy a ticket at the gate?
Unless sold out prior to the event (VIP sold out last year), the following ticket types will be sold at the gate on event day: Regular Battle Ticket - $35; VIP Ticket - $50, Youth Ticket - $10
Is there parking available?
Parking is available nearby for a fee in the World Wonders Garage at 100 S. Illinois St., and the Pan Am Plaza Garage at 201 S. Capitol Ave. There is also ample street parking for a fee around Downtown Indianapolis.
I bought a ticket, but now I can't go. Can I get a refund?
All ticket sales are final and refunds will not be provided. However, you may resell or transfer your ticket to another person.
What if the weather is bad?
We will do our best to host the Indy Burger Battle even in the event of inclement weather, so please dress and prepare accordingly. In the case of extreme weather preventing grilling, the event may need to be cancelled and ticket purchasers will be notified. Unfortunately we CANNOT REFUND your ticket and your ticket purchase will be considered a donation to Building Tomorrow.
Can I bring my dog or other pet to the event?
Due to food safety concerns, we do not allow animals into the event.
