Public  Tasting

One of the most important award categories of the American Pride Chili Cook Off is the People’s Choice. This means YOU, the General Public need to come out and taste all of the wonderful chilies put together by cooks of all experience levels.

This is a FAMILY AFFAIR so bring the kids for an afternoon of camaraderie, food, and entertainment. A variety of music is provided by DJ - Tim Walker and other local artist. There is also a play area for the kids.

Tasting Kits are available for the “TASTERS” which include spoon, cup, pencil, and score card. You will receive a wrist band when you purchase your kit. (No Wristband, no Taste).

You will taste as many chilies as you want and vote for the ones you think are the best. The tasting kits are sold for a modest $5 fee to support our military and military oriented youth groups.

Come on out and join us on the chili trail for an afternoon of fun, food, and entertainment.
