A panel of judges will award three prizes to the top grill masters, including a $1,000 first place award. The ticket-buying public will also have the opportunity to try all of the hot dog creations and vote for their “fan favorite” dog.

In addition to delicious dogs, attendees are invited to enjoy cold drafts provided by Victory Brewing Company and The Boston Beer Company (21 and up) and fruity, natural and small-batch pops from Mom Pops. Live entertainment will be provided by local band Swift Technique.

A limited quantity of VIP packages are on sale NOW at http://bit.ly/dogdays15tickets for $30 and include early access at 12:00pm before the crowds, a VIP gift, and 20 food/drink tickets. General admission starts at 1:00pm and is free. Food and drink for general admission is pay-as-you-go with tickets costing 4/$10. Food will cost one ticket. Beer will cost two tickets.

Funds raised will support the preservation of the historic Headhouse Square Shambles. The Shambles is America’s oldest surviving Colonial-era marketplace, also known as “New Market.”  Built before the Revolution in 1745, its design mimics the many market structures or rural England – characterized by two parallel rows of brick pillars supporting a gable roof that covers an arched and plastered ceiling.  The Shambles continues to be home to the Sunday Headhouse Farmers’ Market and many other events throughout the year.
