- A view from the Nathan's Famous hot-dog eating contest held on July 4, 2018.
The San Antonio Stock Show Rodeo will host the event February 23 at 2 p.m. Those interested in entering the qualifying contest can register here.
Nathan's will continue the tour with stops in 13 additional cities, leading up to the July 4 event. The top male and female participants from each qualifier will be invited to compete in the ESPN-televised finals, held at the original Nathan's Famous on Coney Island.
This year, participants can expect to compete with the reigning hot dog-eating champion, Joey Chestnut, who ate 74 wieners and buns in 10 minutes last year, setting a new world record.
