Freaky Friday Coney Eating Contest

June 15, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Outside of Texas, Cincinnati is the most chili-crazed city in the United States, with more chili parlors per capita and per square mile than any other city in the country. According to the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, Cincinnatians consume more than 2 million pounds of chili each year, topped with 850,000 pounds of shredded cheese. No wonder so many people sign up for this contest!

In the contest, twelve people compete against each other in a timed event. The object is to eat as many cheese coneys as possible in three minutes. Grand prize is a $50 gift card to Camp Washington Chili, t-shirt and trophy. Eleven runners-up will each receive a $10 Camp Washington Chili gift card and t-shirt.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! TO SIGN UP PLEASE:

1. Make sure you areĀ 18 years of age

2. Read the Official Contest Rules

Congratulations to Joe LaRue from Northern Kentucky, who was the 2011 coney eating champ, devouring nearly 15 cheese coneys in three minutes!

Camp Washington Chili is a family-owned business serving authentic Cincinnati-style chili since 1940. The restaurant is located at 3005 Colerain Ave in Camp Washington, just off I-75 at the Hopple Street exit.
