The Great Pumpkin Farm will hold a pumpkin pie eating contest on September 18 in Clarence, NY awarding $1000/$500/$250/$50.
Spectrum Local News has a news video about Ronnie Hartman training for Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest.
The Buffalo Wing Festival announced it would not hold a 2020 event today. With the removal of the Lewisville, TX tamale contest, scheduled for September, there are currently no upcoming contests with a date on the MLE calendar. (Smoke's Poutinerie contest remains listed without a date). The Colorado State Fair will be scaled back, so a Slopper eating contest appears unlikely.
