The Downtown Chili Cook-Off started in 2003 and continues to grow in popularity both with contestants and tasters. The event is held in the fall during the Day in Downtown Street Festival sponsored by the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce.
Individuals, businesses, and non-profit groups show off their cooking skills and compete to see who has the best tasting chili in Fuquay-Varina. All awards are voted on by the public.
Join us November 1 for the 2014 Downtown Chili Cook-off
The chili tasting starts at 10:30am and ends at 3:30pm or until we run out of chili. Do to the tremendous turnout in previous years we ran out of chili early so we encourage tasters to arrive before 1:00pm. A $6 ticket purchased at the event will allow you to sample all the chili and vote on your favorite. This year we will be located in the parking lot to the right of Ann's Diamond Center and across the street from Shoppes on Main.
All proceeds benefit revitalization efforts in Historic Downtown Fuquay-Varina.
