July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest featuring Joey Chestnut: Time, TV info

The Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest is set to return to Coney Island on Sunday. Last year, the annual Fourth of July event took place at a private location with plexiglass between competitors due to COVID-19 restrictions.  

Hot dog devouring juggernaut Joey Chestnut, the world record holder with 75 hot dogs and buns consumed, will be aiming for his 14th Mustard Belt title in 15 years at Maimonides Park. The women’s championship will begin at 11:30 a.m. on ESPN3 before the men’s competition airs live at noon on ESPN. This year’s one hour telecast marks the 18th consecutive year ESPN has televised the event.

For the second year in a row, ESPN commentator Mike Golic Jr. will do play-by-play of the eating competition, while longtime MLE chairman George Shea is set to again host the stage show for the historic contest.
