Welcome to the 31st Annual Chili Cook-off
Hosted by the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce, the annual Chili Cook-off has featured the culinary creations of individuals, local organizations, and area businesses for more than 30 years! What started with just a few vendors on one block of East Main Street in downtown Belleville has now grown to more than 70 vendors and based on attendance, is now the largest festival in Belleville. 

Many people attend the Chili Cook-off to enjoy the great chili, entertainment and other festivities, but most don’t realize that it’s the biggest fundraiser of the year for many non-profit organizations. Over half of the vendors participating at the Chili Cook-off each year are either a non-profit organization or a business raising money for a charity. 100% of the money you spend at each booth goes to that vendor. 

In addition to the money the vendors donate to their causes, the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce also donates 100% of the money collected from the People’s Choice Award.  100% of the donated proceeds go to the Community Interfaith Food Pantry in Belleville.
