Alton Main Street invites you to join the fun at the Downtown Alton Chili Cook-Off, to be held on Saturday, October 17th from Noon until 3:00 p.m. in the valet parking lot of Argosy Casino - right on Alton's beautiful riverfront! The Chili Cook-Off is a great civic event that encourages local chili chefs (both amateur & professional) to match their favorite recipe with others in similar categories in this fiery competition!
Judges will award $100 prizes to winners in 4 categories: Individual, Organization, Business, and Restaurant. The team chosen as “People’s Choice” will receive the coveted silver ladle & plaque and bragging rights. In addition to awards for the best chili, we are also giving a $100 prize for the best-decorated booth, so come prepared to put your theme as well as your chili on display!
A super fun day hanging with members of the community, slinging chili for all of the patrons and waiting with anticipation as the judges make their decision. So please come to join us for some fun! For more information or to register please click here!
