Together we have donated over $3,500,000 to local charities.
In the fall of 1999, eight years after the inception of the Chilifest event, Chilifest Incorporated, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, was formed to professionally manage and organize what has become the most anticipated event in the Brazos Valley – CHILIFEST.
Over the years, Chilifest Inc. has assembled an untarnished resume of success – having entertained thousands of patrons and attracted some of country music’s finest performers to our area. Undoubtedly, Chilifest remains in a class of its own: dedicated to provide a spectacular event, with all proceeds benefiting the community to aid in many worthy causes. We have proven that Texas music brings loyal fans to the Starlight Ballroom in Snook each spring where acres of pastureland are transformed into a two-day event that includes chili, live music, and FUN!
