PUEBLO — The World Slopper-Eating Championship will take place at the Colorado State Fair this year, despite most fair events being canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

The event will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 5 at the PB&T Bank Pavilion on the Colorado State Fairgrounds.

This year, number one ranked competitive eater in the world, Joey Chestnut, will make his debut at the competition. Chestnut will be attempting to dethrone number four ranked competitive eater in the world, Darron Breeden.

Breeden won the competition last year after eating 28.25 Sloppers in eight minutes.

In addition to Breeden and Chestnut, the event will feature some of the country's other top eaters. They will have eight minutes to consume as many sloppers as they can.

The event will be closed to the public, but will also be live-streamed.

You can find out more information about the competition and this year's Colorado State Fair on the fair's official website and Facebook page.
