“The launch of the National Bagel Eating Contest was a no brainer,” said Andrew Hazen, Founder & CEO of the National Bagel Association. “Millions of people love bagels and given the success of other competitive eating contests we knew we had to step-up, create and launch the event!”  

Those interested in competing in the National Bagel Eating Contest should visit www.BagelEatingContest.com to obtain information and register. All competitors must be over 18 years of age.

The fun-filled morning will include a Bagel Expo with bagel tastings, Bagel Art, bagel games and more! Attendees can register online.
