Chilifest was conceived as a chili cook-off in 1991, and the competition has continued every year since. This has also included the presence of country/rock bands, providing entertainment for all those in attendance. However, with the continuous expansion of the live music element of the event, the majority of anticipation is dedicated to the talent level of the musicians that come to perform at Chilifest Music Festival. There is always Chili at Chilifest. This year our Chili Cook-Off will be bigger and better offering teams some incentives to want to participate even more by getting a Chilifest Team together.
