The Spirit of Texas Festival World’s Largest Chili Eating Championship

Date: 03/04/2017
Location: College Station, TX
Winner: , Chili
Total Prizes: $4,000 Total Prize Purse


Major League Eating is proud to announce a new addition to our slate of sanctioned Championship events for 2017. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet The Spirit of Texas Festival World’s Largest Chili Eating Championship. Major League Eaters are warmly encouraged to sign up for the opportunity to compete in the first installment of this event.

Some geographical and culinary pairings simply make sense. You wouldn't go to France and skip the French fries. You wouldn't go to Italy and skip the pizza. You might, admittedly, go to Scotland and skip the haggis, but that would be your loss. And you would certainly not go deep in the heart of Texas–College Station, more accurately—and enjoy a warming bowl of chili. Maybe more than one bowl. Maybe two gallons in six minutes if you are on your game.

Do you have an appetite befitting the Lone Star state's reputation for largeness? Do you have what it takes to power through six grueling minutes of sanctioned chili competition? Do you already know that early March is the best time of year in the great state of Texas? Then get yourself to The Spirit of Texas Festival World’s Largest Chili Eating Championship. At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!

1st) $2,000
2nd) $1000
3rd) $600
4th) $300
5th) $100

This contest will take place at 1pm Texas time on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at the Spirit of Texas Festival, Wolf Pen Creek, 1015 Colgate Drive
, College Station, TX!
