With contestants in four age categories, the preliminaries of this contest are held Saturday morning at 10:30 am on the festival grounds.

A different quantity of Kool-Aid is used for each of the four age categories and contestants compete for first, second and third prizes only in their age category. Contestants must sign a release form and minors must have that form signed by a parent or guardian.

Kwickest Kool-Aid Drinking Contest Rules & Entry Form



The Kwickest Kool-Aid Drinking Contest will be held at the festival on Saturday morning. Registration begins at 10:30 am. Contestants will be asked to form a line and will be called to the stage five at a time. In order to participate, you must complete a release form and fill out an entry form before you will be allowed to compete. Minors must have a parent or legal guardian sign the release and be present when the minor competes. When you’re called to the stage, you’ll choose between two flavors of Kool-Aid. (One flavor will be sugar-free and the Kool-Aid will NOT be iced.) Contestants are timed individually as they guzzle the required amount of Kool-Aid for their age category and are not necessarily competing against each other.

You must finish the entire glass of Kool-Aid, spilling less than 10%, in order for your time to be recorded. The amount of Kool-Aid spilled is decided by the judges or timers and their decisions are final. The winners of each age category will be announced on the Downtown Entertainment Stage at 1:30pm.
