It will be a chili day in Madison on Saturday, October 7- we guarantee it! Now that’s chili, not chilly (we can’t make those kinds of guarantees)!
Get ready for a local favorite, Madison’s Annual Chili Cook-Off and Fall Festival! You don’t have to be a chili-expert in order to judge this contest. With the purchase of a $5 wristband, you will be able to sample each team’s chili and cast a vote for your favorite recipe. How fun?! Tasting starts at 12:30 and wrist bands go on sale at 12 p.m. sharp! *Insider tip — get in line early!
In addition to the chili contest, the day will feature a homemade cornbread contest and what would a chili cook-off be without an eating contest?
Participants 18 and older are invited to compete in the Krystal’s Chili Pup Eating Contest. The winner of this contest will receive $25 in Madison Downtown Dollars… (you know what that means ladies. Bring your hungry sons and husbands)!
Grab a beer and peruse the homemade arts, crafts, and farm goods or settle down and relax in the beer garden.
The Chili Cook-Off also has activities for the little ones such as face painting, balloon hats, and bounce houses.
Whether you’re in it for the food, the people watching, or the good times with friends, be sure to head to the Madison Chili Cook-Off and Fall Festival on October 7!
