Not familiar with this championship chili cook-off?

  • Individual chefs and cooking teams representing vegetarian organizations, community groups and businesses compete for trophies, cash prizes, and bragging rights. Winners are selected by celebrity judges and also by popular vote with the grand prize being $1000. Meat-eaters and vegetarians alike attend to taste the 100% vegan chilis - and vote for their favorite, while enjoying an afternoon of live entertainment, cooking demos, a jalapeno-eating contest, and local craft beer. It's the best-tasting heart-healthiest chili cook-off ever!


  • Admission is free. Wristbands for chili-tasting privileges cost:
  • Adults and Children 13 years+: $10
  • Children 6-12 years: $5
