Stone Crab Eating Contest

Are you an amateur eater in the Florida Keys? Then find a partner and head on out to Keys Fisheries Market and Marine on Saturday, October 19th to take on other teams in an attempt to crack and eat 25 succulent stone crab claws in the fastest time! Proceeds from the team challenge will benefit the Dolphin Research Center’s Education Programs.
As a not for profit, Dolphin Research Center relies on members, donors, and our community to continue our mission of research and education. We’re thrilled that Keys Fisheries Market and Marina in cooperation with Capital Bank and Pepsi have partnered together to help our organization. We will have information about DRC at the competition, and the winning team will receive a dolphin interactive program.
All entrants must register and be present by 12 p.m. the day of the event. Teams must consist of two amateur eater participants. While contestants will be provided with shell crackers, entrants can gently smack the back the shell with the back of a large spoon – the locals way to crack claws!
To register for the team challenge or make a donation, visit any of the nine Capital Bank locations in the Keys during normal business hours. The team entry fee is $100 and contestants must be at least 18 years of age.
Whether you take part in this competition or just want to help support DRC, we look forward to seeing you at Keys Fisheries!
