Downtown Alton Chili Cook-Off

Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022

Alton Main Street invites you to join the fun at the Downtown Alton Chili Cook-Off, to be held on Saturday, October 15th from Noon until 3:00 p.m.

RAIN OR SHINE – on the Riverfront in Argosy Casino’s Valet Parking Lot (#1 Piasa St.)

LIVE MUSIC from Big George Jr. and the NGK Band!

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.

Tickets will only be available at the door: $10.00 for adults & $5.00 for kids 12 & under. Your ticket gains you a sample of chili from each team.

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 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!
