Major League Eating is proud to welcome a new event to its 2016 slate of sanctioned eating Championships. World, meet The Dell’Osso Family Farm Baconfest World Bacon Eating Championship, coming to Lathrop, CA, Father's Day weekend. You two are going to get along just great.

Since the dawn of culture, bacon has inspired more great art—epic poems, giant canvasses, thunderous arias—than love, war and the fleeting futility of the human experience combined. That is because bacon is just the best and everybody knows that. There are precious few moments in life that can not, in some way, be bettered by the addition of bacon; those moments not improved by bacon are rubbish and best not lived. Bacon is king. Love live bacon.

Major League Eaters will thrill to the challenge of consuming one of the world's greatest foods in sanctioned competition. The Dell’Osso Family Farm Baconfest World Bacon Eating Championship is an opportunity to answer one of life's burning questions—what if, say, there was an unlimited amount of bacon and I had, like, eight minutes to eat as much as I could, like, I don't know, how much bacon could I eat, do you think? That question will be answered. A world record will be set.

Do you dare challenge King Bacon? Do you have what it takes to set a new World Record? Do you want to witness the ultimate expression of unbridled human joy? This is The Dell’Osso Family Farm Baconfest World Bacon Eating Championship. At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!
