3rd Annual World Bratwurst Eating Championship

For international & local competitors.

Aug 24

On Saturday, August 24, the 47th Snowbird Oktoberfest will host the 3rd annual Snowbird Bratwurst Eating Championship, an official sanctioned Major League Eating (MLE) event, featuring top-ranked MLE competitors from around the United States. 

The Snowbird Bratwurst contest includes a field of MLE stars and a couple local amateurs who will take aim at a $4,000 cash purse and a stomach full of delicious bratwurst. Competitors will have 10 minutes to eat as many bratwursts as possible to see if they can break the world record of 34 brats by Gideon Oji from 2017!

Registration is now live and a handful of aspiring local competitive eaters can have their shot at glory, competing with the heavyweight eaters in attendance by registering below.
