Public Entry fee is $35 and a minimum of 4 gallons of chili. (hint: the more chili the more people to taste your chili and vote for your chili)
Public Service teams (fire departments, police departments, etc) do not have to pay an entry fee, but still provide at least 4 gallons of chili for public sampling.
Last year we had more than 3,000 attendants, so feel free to bring more. The "Peoples Choice" award will be voted by the public that will be sampling your chili. If you run out of chili too soon, someone might miss tasting your great recipe and not vote for you.
Set-up before 10:30AM on March 11, 2017. You will be provided a table and 2 chairs. Bring a tent! Your chili can be partially cooked ahead of time or all cooked on site (just have it warm and ready by 11:30). Any type of chili is welcome (Beef, Pork, Chicken, Vegetarian, beans, etc). You must keep the chili at an adequate heat. Judging samples will be picked up at noon.
We can provide a volunteer to serve your chili to attendees if you request one, and all cups and spoons will be provided.
We are excited to announce that our celebrity judges will be awarding a trophy to the team that has the best Habitat for Humanity theme. Think hard hats, hammers, volunteers, windows, doors, etc. Costumes, decorations and fun are strongly encouraged!
