6th annual Hot Dog Eating Competition

 If you think you can stomach this gutsy competition–presented by Cleaver’s Organic Beef Hot Dogs –grab your friends and get ready to indulge in all things hot-diggety-hotdog at Luna Park  on Saturday 20 July from 11am. 

 If you are just a spectator of this crazy hot dog gobbling action, make sure to take advantage of the Hot Dog Special Offer of 3 rides + 1 Cleaver’s Organic Beef Hot Dog for just $27.50. These special tickets can be pre-purchased online, or at the ticket box on the day. 

We are also so lucky to have Billy Boyd, founder of Competitive Eating Australia, as our MC for the day working the crowd into a pre-kick-off frenzy for both the men’s and women’s eating competitions encouraging spectators to choose their favourite ‘chompetitor’ and cheer them on as they battle it out. 

The ‘weiners’ announced and crowned ‘2019 Hot Dog Eating Champions’ by Billy will not only bask in the glory of eating the most hotdogs in 10 minutes, they will also each be taking home a prize of $400 cash, a Top Dog Trophy, plus an Annual Pass to Luna Park. Our runners-up will receive $250 cash and a Luna Park Annual Pass. 

Throughout the day everyone will have the chance to enjoy rib-tickling roving entertainment, and a dance with our Hot Dog Mascot and friends as well as their share of spinning and squealing on our rides and attractions. Competitors and spectators alike can dance their buns off to LIVE performances of rock ‘n’ roll music from the 50s, 60s and 70s during the afternoon. So come on down to Luna Park for Hot Dog Day this year–it’s the biggest and sauciest of its kind in Australia. And while the competition for a place in the Men’s event is fierce, Luna Park is still seeking women competitors who can ‘down a dog or three’. So if you’re up for the challenge head to, there you’ll find the registration form and all event details.
