Olive Burger Festival


The Lansing Foodies Facebook group is hosting the first-ever festival honoring a tried-and-true Michigan staple: the olive burger. The event runs noon to 7 p.m. Saturday (June 24) at Jackson Field, home of the Lansing Lugnuts.

Local restaurants and food trucks will offer their versions of olive burgers, and attendees can vote for their favorites. VEG-N is serving a vegan olive burger, so there’s truly something for everyone.

There will also be non-olive-burger food options, such as ice cream from Babe’s Corner and Chinese dishes from Hong Kong Restaurant, as well as beer and wine for purchase, live music, drag performances, an olive-burger-eating contest and games and activities, including bounce houses and face painting for kids.

Nuthouse Sports Grill, across the street from the stadium, will host the afterparty following the festival.

Admission is $20 and includes 10 food tickets. Each burger sample, which is about ¼ of a burger, costs two tickets. Attendees can buy additional food tickets for $1 each.

Register now at lansingfoodies.com and make sure to arrive with an empty stomach, as you’ll have a lot of sampling to do.
