Doing your menu planning for the week? How about a nice, juicy burger? Good news, you can have burgers for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a midnight snack this week and still not run out of options.

That's because Monday kicks off one of Portland's most beloved celebrations: Portland Burger Week. Portland Burger Week is an ode to everyone's favorite sandwich: the burger. And in true Portland style, the event offers a variety of burgers that highlight the uniqueness of our local culinary scene.

Portland Burger Week is hosted by the Portland Mercury and sponsored by New Seasons market. Running from Monday, August 16th through Sunday, August 22nd, Portland Burger Week features a whopping thirty-seven different burgers to choose from, all specially created by local restaurants for this event.

All burgers feature high-quality perfectly cooked beef. Several burgers are vegetarian, vegan, or can be made vegetarian or vegan by request.

Each one-of-a-kind burger is available for the low price of $6 during Portland Burger Week. It's a great opportunity to support Portland's struggling restaurant industry, which has been especially hard hit by the pandemic. And with most participating restaurants offering carry-out or delivery in addition to dine-in service, you can participate in a way that feels safe for you.

3 Unique Burgers to Try

Portland Burger Week is famous for its unique flavor combinations. Each year there are new offerings to try. Here are three that look particularly unique:
