I wrote a fun article last week about some of the best food challenges in Connecticut, like the Bear's Smokehouse BBQ Sandwich Challenge, and the Doogie's 2 Foot Hot Dog Challenge. But I just found a destination event that's coming up in Naugatuck for those who want to test the limit of their stomach that I think you should know about.

Connecticut Food Truck Battles Festival is coming to the Naugatuck Event Center at 6 Rubber Ave on Saturday and Sunday, May 14 and 15, 2022. The event will feature over 30 food trucks. I found a list of some of the individual food eating challenges that have been announced so far, and if you've dreamed of stuffing your face with different food items (other than Nathan's Hot Dogs), this may be the place for you because there's not only adult challenges, there's a whole bunch of reasonable challenges for the kids too.
