Chilifest Teams


Exclusive group spots. Discounted tickets. Available package deals for every need.

Signing up for a Chilifest team gives you and your friends a “home base” for the weekend and allows you to bring in everything from tents and seating, to food and drinks. Perfect for small groups of friends as well as large organizations, this is the ultimate way to experience Chilifest.


Note: Please carefully read through all changes so you are properly prepared for sign-ups and Chilifest 2020

The Basics: A minimum of 15 members are required for a team. Each team “spot” is a 20×20 plot on the Chilifest event grounds conveniently located within seconds of the stage. We have many larger teams that request multiple “spots”. This is acceptable as long as the 15 people per spot minimum is met and fully paid for by March 6st. Spot selection will be held shortly after, and a Chilifest representative will contact you with more information. After spot selection, you may continue to add team members all the way up to the event but your spot will be set. The number of spots is not guaranteed and will vary depending on the total size of your team and the total number of patrons that attend the event.

Example: Captain of ‘Chilifest Team A’ has 90 members signed up by February 25th. The Captain will only be required to fill out ONE FORM FOR CHILIFEST 2020 and the team can request 1-6 spots.

New for 2020:

  • Transportation: Public buses will now be provided for all team members returning to College Station between the hours of 9:00 PM and 2:00 AM on Friday, April 3rd with the drop-off location being Post Oak Mall. Teams will not be allowed to run private transportation during this timeframe or on Saturday. This is to address transportation issues arising from Friday night team bussing in previous years. Teams will still be allowed to run private transportation from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Friday.
  • Team Registration & Discounted Pricing: Starting on January 17th, teams may register online and purchase tickets from Jan. 17th to March 27th at the discounted team price of $70 plus $4.50 in service fees. Tickets bought in-person at The Tap on Team Add-On Day will receive a further reduced price of $70 plus $3.00 in service fees. All tickets purchased after March 27th will be treated as General Admission and subject to standard 2-Day GA pricing and fees. ($80/ticket + fees)
  • Team Spot Selection: Spot selection will go first in the order of teams who registered in-person at CC Creations on Team Signup Day, followed second by the order of online registrations from January 17th to Team add-on day at The Tap on February 26th. The size of your team’s spot will be dependent on the number of people on your team at the end of Team add-on’s/Team Captain Meeting at The Tap.
  • 2 Days of Team Set-UpChilifest Teams will now have 2 DAYS to set up their build to create the best Team experience possible. If teams wish to bring in materials for their spot with the use of a truck and/or trailer, teams MUST arrive prior to their designated load-in time, on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1st. Teams will be allotted 30 minutes to unload any of their team spot materials (please see “Team Spot and Build Regulations” document below for restricted items).
    • Please keep the number of vehicles used to a minimum, as large volumes of vehicles lengthen the efficiency that we can get teams in and out. After teams have unloaded their materials within their 30 minute window, they must remove their vehicles from the event grounds.Teams will be able to park their vehicles in the adjacent field, and return to the Chilifest grounds BY FOOT to set up their team spot. Team members will be able to set up their team spot for the remainder of the day, UNTIL 5:00PM. At this time, all guests must leave both the grounds, and the parking lot. Teams will then be able to return to the Chilifest grounds the following day, April 2nd, at 8:00am. No vehicles will be allowed in the grounds, but teams will be able to park in the adjacent field across from FM 3058 once again, and walk in to the event grounds, with tools, water, and personal effects for the day. No additional building material, BYOB-beverages for the event, or anything remaining in the build for Friday will be allowed into the event grounds on Thursday.
    • A preliminary build/team spot inspection will take place at 1:00 PM, on April 2nd. Any necessary adjustments will be notified to team captains.
    • A final build/team spot inspection will take place at 5:00 PM on April 2nd. At this point, ALL team spots and builds must pass inspection by stated Chilifest rules, and will also be inspected by a local fire marshall.
    • We are excited to provide teams with more time to finalize their builds, and ensure safety. With these rules, teams WILL NOT be allowed to bring in tools to the Chilifest grounds on Friday. Please note, the time allotted is meant for finalizing any builds, structures, or spot set-ups. Do NOT use this time to start building. Structures brought to the event should be near completion, and the time provided should be used to get needed materials in-place, and assembled. We hope this improves the experience for our teams, and we look forward to seeing great, creative, and safe structures for Chilifest 2020.



Bring your own sofa to Chilifest and watch the shows in comfort. Large items include refrigerators and other similarly sized items.
