Main Street Arena on the Downtown Mall

  • Hometown Cooks/Non-profits - $50 entry fee includes a 10'x10' booth with table, two event t-shirts and two tasting wristbands.  
  • Businesses/Restaurants $150 includes an opportunity for on-air food sampling with Monticello Media radio DJs leading up to the event, a 10x10 booth with table, two event t-shirts and two wristbands for tasting (not to mention the opportunity to support a great cause!).
  • All-you-can-eat Tasting Tickets - $10 tickets include access to all the chili one could ever want, entertainment from several great bands and lots of other fun event activities.
This year there will be prizes for Popular Choice, Blind Taste Test (judged by local celebrity judges) and Best Booth!

Anyone and everyone! The bigger this event gets the better it is!  Interested in cooking?   Download your application here!

Not up for cooking? No problem! You can help by spreading the word and, of course, eating chili! And, by popular demand, we will be selling our infamous Red Shoe Cville boot mugs again this year!  Remember, the more people that eat, drink and cook with us, the more we can give back to The Ronald McDonald House of Charlottesville!
