Chili’n 2012

Jul ’12

Save the date!  Chili’n 2012 is scheduled for July 21, so start honing in on your chili cooking skills to see if you can unseat our current chili champions!

Will Trial by Fire be judged a winner? Will Dos Sombreros give out black eyes rather than sport them?  Will Leapin’ Cheeseheads take the top price for showmanship?

These questions and many more will be answered at Chili’n 2012, so mark your calendars!

Chili cook-off pre-registration is available until July 13, 2012.  See Registration form for details.
*Cook-off spots are limited, so pre-registration is recommended.
