This might be the first time you ever hear of a chimney dog eating contest happening in YYC, but people seem to be excited about the July 4 event so it probably won’t be the last.
The goal is simple, registered participants will attempt to eat as many chimney dogs as they can in a five-minute time frame at UTCA, and the winner will get some serious prizes.
The victor of this challenge will walk away with a $100 cash prize and FREE chimney dogs for a year (one chimney dog per week for 52 weeks).
Water will be provided and there will also be a vegan dog option available, so really, you have no reason not to test your chomping skills at this one.
UTCA has already confirmed the registration of a Pro-Competitive Eater from BC, so you best be ready to bring your A-game come eating time.
When: July 4 from 6 to 7:30 pm
Where: UTCA Chimney Cakes – 207 13 Avenue SE
Price: $10 entry for contestants; buy online
