Chili'n on the Avenue

Chili’n on the Avenue scheduled for July 24, will put amateurs and professionals head to head in Milwaukee’s only Nationally Sanctioned Chili Competition.

The Chili Appreciation Society International’s mission is to promote chili and raise money for charity. Each year, nearly ten thousand cooks share their chili fun and good deeds with each other, public, and sponsors at 600 CASI cookoffs, throughout the U.S. and neighboring countries. These CASI-sanctioned events raise over a million dollars, annually, for local charities and provide a chance for cooks to qualify for the Terlingua International Chili Championship. Come on in and find out how you can share our fun and charity.
