Event Description

Chili Cook-Off
301 South Main
October 29
10 am – 4 pm
Please join us for the 9th Annual Downtown Chili Cook-Off in Historic Downtown Fuquay-Varina on Saturday, October 29th. The event is part of the Day in Downtown Festival which draws more than 7000 people to the Fuquay retail district for a day of family fun.
The Cook-off is becoming quite a Fuquay-Varina tradition! In 2010, chili cook-off teams competed for the $500 grand prize and hundreds of people tasted great chili all day long! The good natured, fun, competition helped raise funds for Fuquay-Varina Downtown Revitalization, which serves the historic core districts of Fuquay-Varina.
In addition to a first place prize of $500, there is a second place prize of $300 and the third place winner will receive $150. All awards are voted on by the public. If you’re not a cook, but you love to eat chili, come on down to the Downtown Chili Cook-off on Saturday, October 29th from 10:30 am - 3:30 pm and taste, taste, taste!! You can taste all the chili entries for $5.00. We'll be located in the large parking lot on Main Street.
