The Festival’s beloved Burger BashⓇ gets a fresh new look this year, joining forces with Heineken Light! After celebrating its 10th birthday last year, the queen of burgers is back to keep the juicy creations coming at the Heineken Light Burger Bash presented by Schweid & Sons hosted by Rachael Ray. A syndicated television star with her own show, Rachael Ray, an iconic Food Network television personality, bestselling cookbook author, Founder and Editorial Director of her own lifestyle magazine, Rachael Ray Every Day, and Founder of the Yum-o! Organization, Ray brings her high-energy and passion for burgers to South Beach for the 11th year. Join us under our iconic white tents nestled in the sparkling sands behind The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach hotel to graze on carefully curated offerings from chefs from across America, and sip on refreshing Heineken Light beer and wine selections. Who’s burger reigns supreme? The choice is yours as you cast your vote for the Heineken Light People’s Choice Award!

An esteemed panel of judges, including Ayesha Curry, Emilio Estefan, Jill Martin, Rev Run and Adam Richman, will decide who will receive this year's Schweid & Sons The Very Best Burger Award.

ADA Assistance: The Festival will have a limited number of beach wheelchairs available at the Guest Services locations. Please check in directly with a Guest Services Representative for assistance.
