Beijing's largest burger festival is back with a Wild West twist this year.

The Beijinger 2017 Burger Cup is taking inspiration from the rootin' tootin' American West for a burger festival packed with performances, games, and of course, burgers sure to satisfy even the pickiest of cowboys.

A stellar selection of burger vendors are set up for this year's event. Expect a mix of local favorites as well as newcomers to taste test. To accompany the juicy bites, more than 20 brews, both local and imported, will be available to keep tasters refreshed.

What is a festival without some background music? Expect a lineup of some of Beijing's wildest bands, DJs and entertainers playing everything from country to rock. Consider it a perfect opportunity to dance off some calories from all those burgers.

It wouldn't be a themed event without costumes, so dress in your best cowboy and cowgirl getup. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed. And for the little ones, there is a special kids' area and plenty of games and activities to keep them busy while parents enjoy their burgers. There is also a Wild West costume contest for kids.

Last year's festival saw nearly 5,000 guests sample burgers, beers and other bites from over 30 vendors while enjoying entertainment from some of Beijing's best bands and performers, including Stevie Mac and The Mac Daddies and Moonglow Burlesque.
