Winners will not be able to view the Stage Show or participate in the Run Out, but they will have a stellar experience. Winner will be announced Monday, May 23. Purchase your $30 chance to win now!

Molly Maguire's Irish Restaurant & Pub Mx. Blobfest Contest

Ms. Blobfest Universe 2021 called and she’s not giving up her crown without a fight. So . . . best of luck? Only one can reign as Mx. Blobfest Universe 2022!

Shorty’s Short Film Contest

Each year, inspired by the same muse that sang to Director Irvin “Shorty” Yeaworth when he conceived of The Blob, filmmakers of all ages compose entries for our Annual Shorty’s Short Film Contest. Winning films will be screened for the public during Blobfest 2022 (July 8-10). Prizes will be awarded to the winners on Friday night.
