2023 Philly Cheesesteak Competition presented by Deer Park®

​This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Deer Park® Brand, and as part of the celebration, Deer Park is elevating the local people, places, things and traditions that have stood the test of time, which certainly describes the iconic Philly cheesesteak.

The top cheesesteak-makers in the city will be invited to participate in the inaugural Deer Park Philly Cheesesteak of the Year contest at the South 9th St. Italian Market Festival on Saturday, May 20 at 11 am.

Philadelphia area residents can nominate their favorite restaurant below. The winner will not only earn the all-important bragging rights, but will also receive a significant trophy to display in their shop. In addition, Deer Park will donate $5,000 to the charity of the winner’s choice.
