GatlinBURGER Week Participation

September 15 - 24, 2024

We are asking Gatlinburg restaurants to make one unique, great burger to sell for only 7 days to compete for the title of "GatlinBURGER Meister."

How does it work?

During this week, we are asking participating restaurants to create a special, unique burger (beef, fish, pork, chicken, BBQ or veggie) that's NOT currently on your menu and that will only be available for 7 days during GatlinBURGER week. For this promotion, your restaurant can set the price for this special, unique burger as well as choose whether to sell the burger by itself or with a side. Through this promotion, both Gatlinburg visitors and locals have the chance to try these unique burgers and eat to win cool prizes by completing the following 4 steps:

Download to Win

  • DOWNLOAD the Visit Gatlinburg app, go to Challenges to find the GatlinBURGER Week Challenge
  • ORDER the special burger at participating Gatlinburg restaurants to receive the secret code. 
  • CHECK-IN on the app with the secret code at 7 or more participating restaurants to complete the GatlinBURGER Challenge and become a BURGER MASTER. Each location has a unique code.
  • VOTE for your favorite burger to determine which restaurant wins the title of GatlinBURGER Meister. Please VOTE only ONCE. Multiple votes do NOT equal multiple entries.  

Win the title of GatlinBURGER Meister

As visitors vote for their favorite burger, your business will have the opportunity to win the title of GatlinBurger Meister! All and all this is a great way to get people excited visiting Gatlinburg in September and helps your business get additional exposure and new people to try your delicious food! 


The Gatlinburg CVB will promote this event on the Gatlinburg website, Visit Gatlinburg socials as well as through paid digital campaigns and PR. It is sponsored by WATE and will be featured on Living East Tennessee. Gatlinburg hotels will also promote this event to guests. The CVB will provide table tents and posters to participating restaurants to help promote the event which also provides a QR code to download the app. Each restaurant will also receive a unique code to give out to guests when they order the special burger to use on the app to check-in.
