Each team can have a minimum of six and a maximum of 10 participants. For safety and fairness, we will not allow teams to exceed 10 people.
How long will my team be there?
The competition time is about 30 – 35 minutes (depending on how fast you sort!), but the entire time commitment is about an about an hour and a half. Everyone is encouraged to stay and watch the competitions and enjoy the event after your competition is completed.
Should we show up early?
Yes, participants are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their time slot for instructions and a group photo.

What’s this I hear about an After Party?
Be sure to make time after your competition time and head over to Jack Astor’s Lansdowne! That’s where the after party is! Great deals on food for Food Sort Challenge participants, a DJ, and games to keep the fun going all day long!
Can I bring a friend to watch and cheer me on?
Yes, you can certainly bring your fans! We have a cheering section with bleachers where they can catch all the action.
Is there parking?
Parking tickets are for the underground parking at TD Lansdowne Park. Thanks to our Parking Sponsor, Stericylce, each time will be issued one parking pass. Any additional parking is at team’s expense. We encourage carpooling! There should be no problem with parking before 6 p.m.
Is this a very physical event?
You must be able to stand and move at a steady pace for 30 minutes. Some bending and lifting may be required. In the past, we’ve seen people work up a bit of a sweat – it all depends how competitive you are.
Is the venue wheelchair accessible?
Yes, the Aberdeen Pavilion is fully accessible. The competition involves a fair bit of movement, but we will certainly make accommodations if requested. Please let us know if your team requires any accommodations in advance.
What should we wear?
We always encourage people to wear costumes… everything is better when dressed up. But other than that, dress in layers so you can take adjust accordingly to temperature. No heels or open-toed shoes are permitted for safety reasons.
Each competition area will have a coat rack for your layers and bags.
What is the age requirement?
This event is intended for 19 years of age or older.
