Enter to win the hot dog eating competition
The Beef and Beer Fest will be a whole eight hours of non-stop fun and entertainment. And if you do not like beer, you can still have fun as there will be other drinks such as cider and more here.

This is going to be an awesome day which will be held on Sunday 25th November 2018 from 12.00 noon till 8.00 pm. It will be held at the Sweeney Reserve, Golf Links Road, Narre Warren.

As this is a child-friendly event, there will be free children's activities, being housed in a marquee. There will be puzzles, colouring-in, plaster and ceramics painting and board games. There will also be amusements for children, including rides for which you can buy unlimited ride-bands.

For the adults, there will be a bucking bull and a wipeout competition where you can challenge your friends. You could buy raffle tickets for the spinning wheel for just $1 per ticket with some awesome prizes to be won.

And for a really fun time, enter into The Biggest Hot Dog Eating Competition in Melbourne. Prize money is $1,000 cash for each of the winners of two categories - men and women. The record held in the USA is 72 hot dogs in just 10 minutes! The record at Luna Park in Melbourne is 17 hot dogs in 10 minutes. So, Melbournites - are you up for the challenge? Let's see if we can equal the US, and see how many you can eat!

The two competitions will consist of 10 women and 10 men who will line up for 10 minutes of stomach wrenching and gulping down hot dogs with lashings of sauce and mustard. Once you've bought your Beef & Beer Fest ticket, just follow the links to get your application in quickly and then make sure you are one of the first ten to register on the day.

There will be free brewing demonstrations for those keen to make their own beer. Ladies, you will be able to go into the VIP ladies only club when you want some time out from the others! You can get a drink at the Brixton Bar Co. who will be serving cocktails, bubbly and other drinks all during the afternoon.

There will be food stalls with several confirmed stalls being:

Bills BBQ

The Big Little Kitchen - offering high quality, locally sourced food.

Spudalicious - who naturally have those delightful baked spuds with all sorts of fillings.

Bretzel Biz - they are a bakery who make both sweet, and mainly savoury bretzels with various fillings and toppings.
