Celebrate the chili concoctions of friends old and new at this popular local community event and fundraiser. Up to 20 area chefs and wanna-be chefs craft and name special chili recipes for this annual occasion, competing for both prizes and bragging rights. Awards include best chili, best mild chili, best theme (costume) and people’s choice. Age-appropriate beverages are available, too. Tickets are just $15 for an adult; children under age 10 enter for free with a paying adult. Visit for updates!  Sponsored by Evansville Community Partnership, the Chili Cook-Off helps support the community’s multi-day Fourth of July festival, including its famous fireworks display over historic Leonard-Leota Park.
