A panel of judges that includes media, chefs and celebrities will award three prizes to the top grill masters, including a $1,000 first place award.

Judges announced so far include: Marc Summers, Matt Cord, Danya Henninger, Michael Klein, Drew Lazor, Josh Middleton, Audra Neff, Carly Szkaradnik and Julia West.

In addition to the professional competition, 20 contestants will compete in an amateur topping contest that features a "Philadelphia" theme this year. All topping combinations should be inspired by a favorite street, neighborhood, sports team, restaurant, or even favorite Philly Centric ingredients like our local beers, pickles and produce. The winner of the toppings contest will have their creation feaured for a month on the menu at Hot Diggity! Nominate yourself by emailing Hot Diggity! owner Keith Garabedian at keith@thehotdiggity.com. For more information and rules, visit Hot Diggity! on Facebook.

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

A limited quantity of VIP passes are on sale NOW at dogdays14.eventbrite.com 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 or 15/$30. 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.  Farmers, merchants, traders, and craftsmen would back their wagons under the archway where Colonists would shop.  Headhouse Square Farmers' Market, Phair, Veg Fest, Green Fest, Philly Beer Week Beer Garden and many other events all call the Shambles their home during the year.

Thank you to sponsors Drink Philly, Green Mountain Energy, Mom Pops, Uber, Victory Brewing Company and Yelp Philly.
