Chili Teams

Get your tickets here!

What you need to know for the competition:

  • The only requirement to be a chili team is to make at least 5 gallons of chili! We know the blood, sweat, and tears that go into making a good chili, and to say thank you, we'd like to offer each team a $20 uber credit to use towards your ride to bring your chili to the event. We will also be hosting a Chili Team Happy Hour the Saturday a week before the event. Stop on by for some free drinks and get all the information you need for the day of Chili Cook-off. We'll give you your team numbers, table placement, and some other goodies! 
  • Judging will begin promptly at 12:30 pm. Doors open at 1 pm to the public and you must be ready to serve.
  • Don't forget your "flair" to compete for the Team Presentation Award!
    • Ideas include:
    • Team uniforms / costumes
    • Decorated signage for your table
    • Giveaway items 
  • You will be judged on the following by an esteemed panel of experts:
    • Color / presentation
    • Heat
    • Texture
    • Flavor / taste
  • Condiments and garnishes are encouraged. 
  • To bean or not to bean... We'll leave that one up to you.
