Sacramento - California State Fair July 15 & 16, 2016; Qualifying
rounds July 15 at 5 p.m.
Finals July 16 at 6 p.m.
The public is invited to participate in the Annual Corn Dog Championship. Milo Franks' Corn Dog Contest is an annual tradition at the California State Fair. The stakes are high and contestants are amped to win. In one year alone the consumption of corn dogs nearly doubled. You probably shouldn't try this contest unless you've had some previous training as the novice will suffer great discomfort by trying to eat 33 or more corn dogs in 8 minutes.
Registration is available for a limited time before the contest at: castatefair.org .
2014: 18 corn dogs in 8 minutes and $2,500 dollars in cash prize went to the person who ate the most corn dogs within the time allotment last year.
2015: 33 corn dogs were consumed by Molly Schuyler in 8 minutes
Contestants better hope that Hot Dog Eating champion Joey Chestnut doesn't show up. He won the world record for eating 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes at the National Hot Dog Eating Contest last year in Coney Island. Seriously!
