First Annual World Championship Canteen Eating Contest
June 2 @ 1:00 pm
Major League Eating and The Canteen are partnering up to present the first annual world championship Canteen eating contest. The eating contest will take place June 2 at 1:00 p.m. in Central Park, but it’s a weekend-long event starting Friday, June 1, including a ribbon cutting for the newly renovated Canteen alley, musical entertainment, kids activities, shopping discounts in downtown, an opportunity to eat your own Canteen sandwich, prizes, and more.
We’ll also have a skate board demonstration by the legendary Adam Miller, along with a BMX show downtown. There will be food trucks and vendors for your enjoyment as well.
The event will be nationally televised, so it’s a big deal for Ottumwa. Come out and show your support, and invite your friends from out of town for a fun weekend you’ll always remember!
