Zois Greek Pizza Eating Contest

June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm



Last year’s event was a big, fat, glorious food fest. This year we’re back and we’re bigger and better than last year – with new challenges, prizes, and more fun for everyone. Our event this year will coincide with Founder’s Day in Seymour. Founder’s Day will be running from 10am-4pm, and our event will happen rain or shine at 1pm on the dot! Come out and watch some passionate folks compete for pancreatic cancer research and patient aid.
