2017 is the 18th year for the Kelleys Island Brewery annual chili cook-off. People come from all over to submit their favorite chili to be judged by the public and by an anonymous team of judges always present for the afternoon of fun. Customers pay $10 to taste 20 chilies and vote for the winner in three categories.
Sign up your famous recipe and make 10 quarts to qualify for this home-style competition. Categories are Authentic, White, Original, and Vegetarian.
$5 from each ticket sale goes to the local charity of choice. Be sure to enter early this year; we accept the first 20 entrants. Thank you in advance! Any volunteer ticket takers, chili markers, judges or donation station workers can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
