The annual Smoke on the Water Chili Cookoff celebrates its 20th anniversary with dozens of the nation’s top chili cooks competing to see who has the best red, green and home-style chili and salsa. Winners move on to compete at the World’s Championship.
The event includes kids’ activities, frozen t-shirt and hot pepper eating contests, local food vendors, beer from Spriggs Distributing Co. and live music! Samples begin at approximately 11:30am and last until they run out. We recommend arriving early to get your fill! Chili Cookoff judging and awards run until approximately 5pm.
Proceeds benefit HospiceCare.
