Spirit of Texas Festival to Feature World-Class Contests,

Entertainment, Activities for the Entire Family

8COLLEGE STATION, TX, January 23 –World records, competitive eating, Texas 2 stepping, BBQ Cook-Offs and pie contests, major car and motorbike shows and music all will be part of the excitement and fun at the Spirit of Texas Festival, March 2-5, 2017 at Wolf Pen Creek Park in College Station, Texas. Up to 65,000 people are expected to attend the free, four-day extravaganza packed with competitions, food and activities for the entire family.

Headlining the festival will be Brazos Valley’s attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest serving of chili – more than 5,000 pounds of the Texas State food. Currently, the Guinness World Record is held by North Dakota. The event will be sanctioned by the Guinness Book of World Records and a Guinness Adjudicator will be onsite to bring the record back to Texas where it belongs! And who will eat all that chili? Spirit of Texas Festival goers, of course. Everyone will have the opportunity to be part of history, along with a group of professional competitors – Major League Eaters – some of the same guys and gals who eat hot dogs at Coney Island on July 4th each year. They will be devouring their way to $5,000 in cash and prizes at the event officially sanctioned by the International Federation of Competitive Eating. Next, a record-setting Frito pie will be created for everyone to enjoy.

Another Guinness World Record attempt will require at least 2,000 boot-scooting enthusiasts to create the largest Texas 2-Step dance, led by Brazos Valley’s very own Lil’ Wranglers and Elite Wranglers. BBQ grillers will compete for $10,000 in prizes in one of the state’s largest BBQ cook-offs, sanctioned by the International Barbeque Cookers Association. Food truck chefs will vie for $10,000 in the Spirit of Texas Curbside Smack Down. Girl Scouts will celebrate their 105th anniversary at Spirit of Texas Festival. Everyone is invited to dust off their momma’s best recipes for a pie-baking contest with $5,000 in prizes. Gearheads will show their best cars and motorbikes in a competition for $10,000 in cash and prizes. And, a huge variety of other contests, displays, demonstrations, markets and learning opportunities will delight visitors of all ages and interests.

Proceeds from the Spirit of Texas Festival benefit K9s4COPs, Ronald McDonald House, Mobility Worldwide and other local charities. More information and the four-day event schedule are available at www.SpiritOfTexasFest.com.

Spirit of Texas Festival will feature Guinness World Record attempts, plus major food cook-offs and competitions, March 2-5 at Wolf Pen Creek Park in College Station, TX. It’s a free, four-day extravaganza with food, fun and entertainment that will delight the entire family.
The festival will begin with a bid to snatch the Guinness World Record for the largest serving of chili away from the current lightweight record holders in North Dakota. We’re talking about 5,000 pounds of that great staple of the Texas diet! After all, in 1977 the Texas Legislature declared chili to be the State Food of Texas, so it’s an embarrassment for Texas not to hold the record. Word is that festival organizers are considering various chili recipes, and that a taste preview will be scheduled soon. Stay tuned!
A group of professional competitive eaters will all get first crack at the record-setting chili. Major League Eaters – some of the same guys and gals who eat hot dogs at Coney Island on July 4th each year – will devour their way to $5,000 in cash and prizes at the event officially sanctioned by the International Federation of Competitive Eating. Then, all festival-goers will be able to enjoy a record-setting Frito pie.
Backyard grillers also will have a chance to demonstrate their skills and compete for $10,000 in prizes at one of the state’s largest BBQ cook-offs, sanctioned by the International Barbeque Cookers Association. In addition, food truck chefs from around the state will vie for $10,000 in prizes in the Spirit of Texas Curbside Smack Down. Nostalgia-lovers will enjoy a contest that invites everyone to dust off their momma’s best pie recipes and compete in the Spirit of Texas Pie Bake-Off with $5,000 in prizes.
Of course, amid all of the food competitions, demonstrations and eating opportunities, there will be a huge variety of other contests, exhibits and shopping opportunities for festival-goers of all interests and ages. We’re talking about a Guinness World Record-setting Texas 2-Step dance, major car and motorbike shows, and a Round Top, TX meets Nutcracker shopping bazar, and much more.
It’s sure to be a fun time of celebrating the spirit and food of Texas. Details and the four-day event schedule are available at www.SpiritOfTexasFest.com.
