The Taco Fest Hot Pepper Eating Contest
Fargo Taco Fest is partnering up with Creative Care for Reaching Independence (CCRI) for the hot pepper eating contest. The more money raised, the hotter the pepper challengers will have to endure. We have three tiers of peppers. If the event page can raise $500 the contestants will eat Ghost peppers, $1500 for Trinidad Scorpions and $3k for Carolina Reapers. To win the challenge, the contestants will have to consume the whole pepper and not eat or drink anything for ten minutes. Please click the button below to help raise money for this pepper challenge.
The winners will receive a pair of General Admission Jade Presents tickets of their choice (excluding sold out events) and a gift certificate to Fargo Brewing Co. If you want to be a contestant, you can register here.
