Food vendors serving chili are invited to enter the Chili Cook-off Competition.  Vendors can compete in the “Non-Food Service Business/Organization” division or the “Restaurant/Caterer” division. Non-food vendors are not accepted.
A first, second, and third place is awarded in each division. Cash awards ranging from $100 to $300 will be presented to the winners during the festival. (The chili submitted for judging must be from the same pot you serve your customers.) Chili judging will take place at 3:00pm, Friday, October 6th.  

All chili vendors will be provided with a “People’s Choice” bucket. This award is voted on by the people, $1 equals one vote. Festival attendees can vote for their favorite chili Friday and up to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. All proceeds from People's Choice will be donated to the Community Interfaith Food Pantry. All awards are announced at 5:00 pm on Saturday evening.
