 A lot of you are asking what Tacos are we serving during the 2017 Taco Eating Contest this coming Sunday. Here we go: Chipotle’s Mexican Grill! Feel free to go to the Wellington location, near LCBO, and ask for soft-tacos … start practicing!


The Start Communications’ Taco Eating Contest is open to everyone 18 years old or older.

  • There will be one competition for all contestants. All contestants must be present and signed-in at Fiesta London! by 11am on Sunday, June 4th 2017. A contestant will forfeit his or her place should he or she fail to register at the Fiesta London! table by 1pm and be continuously present for the duration of the contest. Contestants will also forfeit his or her place if they leave Fiesta London! after they register.
  • The object is to eat five (5) hot-tacos as fast as possible within the allotted 10-minute period.
  • Contestants may eat either sitting or standing and must complete eating the entire taco and all contents before proceeding to the next taco. Contestants must wait for the starting signal and must stop eating and must promptly place their hands down on the table or at their side at the ending signal.
  • Contestants will be allowed 15 seconds to finish any tacos already in their mouth at the time of the ending signal. Any contestant that throws up will be disqualified. Judges will be on hand to assure adherence to contest rules, tally the number of tacos eaten, monitor the “no throw up or regurgitating” rule, and to disqualify contestants who fail to adhere to the rules.
  • Winners will be determined by speed! In the event of a tie, after a brief interval, 2-minute eat-offs will take place until the winner is selected.
  • Each participant must complete the eligibility requirements and waiver of liability at General Disclaimer before entering. Entries will be also possible at the festival.
