Introducing the next great event from Chattanooga Friends, our first annual Chili-Cook-Off! On Friday September 16, teams from all across Chattanooga will converge on Miller Plaza to test their mettle and your taste buds with their most delicious chili recipes.

Stop by between the hours of 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and purchase a “bottomless” bowl for $5.00 to sample all of the delicious dishes on offer.

Or, if you think you’ve got what it takes, sign your corporate team up and compete. Awards will be given to the chili selected by our celebrity chef judges, as well as, a people’s choice award voted on by the public. Teams that enter at the Event Sponsor level or above are encouraged to bring information about their business to hand out to guests.
The Chili-Cook-Off is being held in conjunction with the City of Chattanooga’s Park(ing) Day, an annual event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks across downtown Chattanooga. The Chili-Cook-Off will offer a delicious, affordable lunch option to event participants.

As with every Chattanooga Friends event, proceeds will go to benefit our supported charities, which for 2016 include Little Miss Mag Early Learning Center, Siskin Children’s Institute, Northside Neighborhood House and Boys and Girls Club of Chattanooga.
If you are interested in signing a team up to compete contact Deadline for entry is August 26, 2016.
