Dive Into a Pueblo Tradition This August 31st, the legendary Colorado State Fairgrounds hosts a spectacle of culinary mastery—the 2024 World Slopper Eating Championship. Nestled in a history-rich site that has evolved from a humble agricultural showcase to a hub of cultural celebration, this event promises excitement and delicious drama.

Savor the Slopper The star of the show? The Slopper—a local favorite that layers a juicy cheeseburger patty and zesty Green Chile sauce atop a soft hamburger bun, served in a classic paper boat. It’s a dish that’s as messy as it is iconic, embodying the bold spirit of Pueblo’s culinary scene. Last year, James Webb set mouths watering and eyes popping by devouring an impressive 32 Sloppers, narrowly edging out the previous record holder, Geoff Esper. Can anyone topple this towering achievement? Join us to find out! Competitors will have 8 minutes to consume as many Sloppers as they can, battling for a piece of the $4,000 prize purse.

Celebrate With Us The Colorado State Fair, with its deep roots starting from a small fort that helped bring the railroad to Colorado, now spans 102 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, playing host to celebrity concerts and community events. This fair isn't just a location; it’s a living part of Pueblo's vibrant history. As we celebrate this legacy, we invite you to join us in making new memories at this year's Slopper Eating Championship.

Register Now! Sign up to compete or grab your tickets to witness this epic showdown. Join us in celebrating Pueblo’s unique heritage—where every bite is a taste of history!
