We suggest making a “family-size” crockpot or stockpot of chili.

Contestants must furnish their own ingredients, equipment, and serving utensils. Power is supplied.

Fox Walsenburg will provide spoons and cups for serving to the patrons.

Please have a list of your ingredients used for allergy purposes. If peanuts or peanut oil is used, please display a warning sign.

All ingredients must be pre-cooked & treated before the event, chili is to be brought “ready to eat.”

You must bring your own condiments and sides (chips, tortillas).

Setup @ 2:00 PM. Bring your chili and set up your space. We encourage you to decorate your spot however you like! Feel free to promote your community events or programs!
