Sacramento Burger Battle
Annual event in September
Cesar Chavez Plaza Park
The Sacramento Burger Battle was founded by 2012 by local burger blogger, Rodney Blackwell, to help raise money and awareness for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation because his oldest daughter has been affected by Crohn’s disease since she was 5 years old.
All funds raised from the event are donated to the charity. In the first 2 years, with the help and support of local restaurants, breweries, wineries and sponsors, it quickly become one of Sacramento’s best food events. In 2014 the Sacramento Burger Battle became an official Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America run event with Rodney acting as a volunteer chairperson.
