Stone Crab Claw Eating Contest

Saturday, October 23, 2021 October 23, 2021 Tranquility Bay

In this unique contest, amateur eaters age 18 and over compete to crack and consume 25 stone crab claws, picking them clean, in the fastest time. If a tie occurs, a 10-claw tiebreaker will be held to determine the winner. The much-anticipated event is to be staged at Keys Fisheries Market and Marina, located off U.S. Highway 1 on Marathon’s 35th Street gulfside. Stone crab season runs from Oct. 15 to May 15 each year. The Keys are a top supplier of the succulent delicacy to restaurants throughout the United States.
