Eating contests have long been a part of the H Street Festival, and Chupacabra (822 H Street) recently announced that they will hold their annual Latin eating competition again this year. The rules are simple:

  • Each contestant will be provided with 1 cubano, 1 arepa, and 8 tacos.
  • Contestants get eight minutes to eat as much as they can.
  • Contestants can sit or stand.
  • They are allowed to dunk food before eating it.
  • 30 seconds of chipmunking is permitted.
  • Toss your cookies and they toss you from the competition.

The 1st prize winner gets a trophy, a $150 gift certificate, and a bunch of sponsor swag. The contestant in 2nd place will receive a $75 gift certificate and swag. 3rd place will get you a $25 gift certificate and swag. Nobody goes home empty handed, even those who don't place walk away with some cool swag.

The contest starts at 5pm at the Fashion Stage set up at 10th and H Street. Email info[at] to register. The H Street Festival is Saturday, September 19th.

eating contests are still a thing?

maybe they should have a tortilla making contest and then have the winner teach them how to make tortillas for like $50.
