The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival World Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship
Strauss Island Stage at Elk Grove Regional Park, Elk Grove Florin Rd, Elk Grove, CA
Here is another reason to give thanks: Major League Eating is proud to announce the return of The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival World Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship to its 2016 slate of sanctioned eating contests. This year marks the third anniversary of this eternal battle between man and woman and pumpkin pie. So much pumpkin pie. Major League Eaters from near and far are warmly invited to sign up to compete in this Championship event. There is no better place to be than Elk Grove, CA, in the early fall light on the first Sunday of October. Seriously, the place is Arcadia.
