Dive Into Sweetness: The Legendary Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest Returns!

Summer in Mattituck means one thing: it's time for the annual Strawberry Shortcake Eating Championship, presented by the Mattituck Lions Club! This beloved event, nestled within the festivities of the Mattituck Strawberry Festival, is not just a contest but a celebration of community spirit and gastronomic gusto. Ready to join the excitement?

A Feast for the Senses

As competitors gear up to consume heaping portions of strawberry shortcake in just eight minutes, the stakes are high. The standing record is an impressive 22 pounds by Carmen Cincotti in 2018. Last year, we saw Geoff Esper come tantalizingly close with 21 pounds. Who will step up this year to challenge the record in this sweet showdown?

This championship is steeped in tradition, growing bigger and better every year. What began as a fun, local competition has transformed into a highlight event that attracts top competitive eaters and captivates audiences. Each year, we witness incredible feats of endurance and skill, contributing rich chapters to the event’s storied history.

A Legacy of Service

Behind this thrilling event is the Mattituck Lions Club, a cornerstone of the community with over a century of service. The Lions Club has always been about more than just community service; it's about making a positive impact that resonates through generations. This event is a testament to their dedication—celebrating community ties and fostering a spirit of generous competition.
