Annual Chili Cook Off Festival

Welcome to our Annual weekend of Festivities at our Annual Chili Cookoff contest. We offer chili for anyone who likes the good stuff!

This weekend we offer all kinds of fun with very fun people. And fabulous food and entertainment for all ages. You are encouraged to enter our Chili Contest and test your cooking skills with other great cooks...and have the opportunity to taste the results.

You can get a baseline chili dinner for $10 (kids $6) or you can get a sampling of ALL the judges chili (for $15).

Every year the chili cooking just gets better and better and the number of chefs just keeps growing.

Perhaps you would like to try your hand this weekend, eh? Below, you will see the fun things we offer, and allow you to purchase your tickets online.
