It wouldn’t be the Fourth of July without Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest. The famed annual event will air on ESPN for the 17th year in a row, starting with the women’s championship and then the men’s. Coverage begins at 12 p.m. ET.

How to Watch Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog-Eating Contest

  • When: Saturday July 4 at 12 p.m. ET
  • TV: ESPN
  • Stream: Watch with Subscription to Hulu + Live TV

While the COVID-19 pandemic has put a stop to many events, the annual hot dog-eating contest will continue on as previously planned. This year’s event, which typically takes place at Coney Island in Brooklyn, will go on with no spectators, however, as the pandemic is still at large. Typically stationed on the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues, this year’s competition will happen in a private location where precautions are more enforceable, according to ESPN.

“2020 has been a year for the history books, and the realization that this storied July 4 tradition would be able to occur is a great feeling,” James Walker, Nathan’s Famous SVP, restaurants, told CNN affiliate WABC. “With that being said, our country and our world has endured so much in the last couple of months, that we’d be remiss if we didn’t use this moment to honor those that have done so much for each of us during this time.”

On the men’s side, this year’s participants have Joey Chestnut’s numbers to look to as the nine-time reigning champ put away 71 hot dogs last year, according to CNN. On the women’s side, participants will get the chance to beat Miki Sudo, who ate 31 franks last year.
