About The Event

You read it right. Vegan Burgers. Do your heart a favor, flexitarians (we already eat plant foods), and spend a Sunday with Baltimore's best restaurants and chefs, stuffing sliders and having fun with your new plus-some burger buddies.

Join Mixolo at the soon- to-be legendary, Vegan Burger Smackdown, the brainchild of Nancy Poznak, founder of BotaniCuisine: Plant-Sourced Dining Outreach. As always, no plus-one required when you go out with us.

Burgers are as American as apple pie – we LOVE our burgers! So why veganize them? Because, apparently we can, says Poznak, and have it even better. "We’ll still love them even more, they’ll love us back, and the results are delicious! "

Ride the vegan wave in the proclaimed #yearofthevegan and taste what all the fuss is about. Don't wait. This event will sell out! If you’re not already eating the now-famous Impossible Burger, the Beyond Meat burger, or the fantastic 'shroom disguises (non- hallucinogenic, ok??), you’re in for some surprisingly delicious treats. There are gluten-free options, too!

All of the great restaurants and chefs in the Vegan Burger Smackdown are ready to win over the skeptics and enthusiasts while they compete by crafting the Best Burger. They are ready to throw down the veggies and other clever plant-based yummies, dress ‘em up like our beloved burgers, then tantalize your taste buds and tummies. Truth be told, our tummies will be much better off in the long run because the more plants we eat, the better.

We’ve got Mixolo seats set aside to find your fellow solo foodie adventurers during the event. We’re going to the Morning Muncher session from 11:00 – 1:15. We won’t just be indulging on delicious sliders, there’ll be some cool “experts” (i.e. chefs, nutritionists, interesting folks) giving out free advice about embracing the pleasure and unique benefits of adding more plant-based foods to our daily choices. And we’ll enjoy it all along with live music, raffles for prizes, dynamic speakers, a magician in the dining areas, and fun trivia games.

Desserts will be showcased as well, for sale. Another way to win you over. Sugar is vegan too. Sweet!

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Eat good and do good, too. Proceeds will benefit like Thrive Baltimore ( and the Food Empowerment Project (, organizations addressing underserved communities' need for access to healthy food and BotaniCuisine's ( outreach and education initiatives.


We'll be in the R House complex in "The Garage" event space directly behind the food hall. Look for the Mixolo signs to find our community table.

Street parking is available and there are public parking lots within a block of R House. It will be a busy time, so consider ride-share as an option. ENTER EVENT at the back of P2 lot from Remington Ave, between 28th & 29th Streets. More details on transportation options can be found here:
