The 4th Annual Australia Day Meat Pie Eating Contest

The 4th Annual Australia Day Meat Pie Eating Contest

Now in its fourth year, it's time again to throw on your pluggers and join us on The Deck for the annual AUSTRALIA DAY MEAT PIE EATING CONTEST from 2pm sharp on Saturday 26 January 2019.

We know it’s typical to think about Barbecues, Beers, and Lamingtons when it comes to all things Australia Day… but what about the humble meat pie?

An icon in Australia, it was described by former New South Wales Premier Bob Carr in 2003 as Australia's "national dish”. So we thought, “why not indulge in the national dish on the official National Day of Australia?” And that’s how the first annual Australia Day Meat Pie Eating Contest at The Glen Hotel was born!

So if you think you’ve got a shot at the crown, come down and claim your throne!

And by crown, we mean the undefeated, pie eating machine…Matt Bell. Matt has won the $500 cash prize three years in a row… totaling a whopping $1,500!

With lightening quick reflexes and a consumption time of 34.6 seconds in last year’s competition, Matt’s pie eating talents get quicker every year. So get practising! If you can beat the 34-second mark, you may be in for a fast win…literally!

The aim of the game is to be the fastest in your heat at fully consuming 8 mini meat pies followed by a pot of XXXX to go through to the final round. The finale will sort the men from the boys and officially crown the fastest man at consuming 12 mini meat pies followed by a pot of XXXX as the Meat Pie Champion and the winner of $500 Cash!! Second and third runners-up in the finale won’t go home empty-handed (or on an empty-stomach) - receiving a carton of XXXX product to take home!

Everyone is welcome to come down and enjoy the day’s festivities with fair-dinkum Aussie lunch specials, cold craft and local beer on tap (and show some support!).

Online registration is required to enter the meat pie eating contest, registration is only $10 plus booking fee and needs to be done before 10am Saturday 26 January 2019.
