This legendary celebration was immortalized in a 2021 documentary aptly titled Hot Dog Party directed by Michael Sinclair.

Saturday night at Hot Dog Party 15 the real road to IMMORTALITY shall be paved to HOT DOG SUPREMACY.”

“After a year off because of COVID-19, Tampa’s original hot dog eating competition and concert returns to Ybor City for a night of very ‘murican celebrations and a bout between past chompions of the contest. Filmmaker Michael M. Sinclair chronicles the contest and contestants in this documentary”
