All teams are welcome to support a local charity while serving up chili and selling additional items at their booths.

Admission is free; sample cups and voting chips will be available for purchase from Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale.  This Year’s Theme is Mardi Gras, and the winner will also win a spot in the World Championship Chili Cook-Off

YOU be the JUDGE… taste some or taste them all!

The event is FREE to attend for Chili Lovers of all ages, Riverwalk supporters and well-behaved dogs on a leash. Starting at only $5, attendees will be able to sample multiple chilies and vote on their choice for BEST CHILI!!

The afternoon will be complete with live entertainment, vendors and fun activities for all to enjoy, while raising funds for Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale and other local non-profit organizations.
