About this Event
Socially Distant & Delicious!
The 23rd Annual Downtown Ithaca Chili Cook-Off presented by Maguire Hyundai Subaru Genesis will be happening FEBRUARY 12-28, 2021. Inside restaurants & takeout. No tickets this year!
Support eateries and judge their chili from the comfort of your own home and pick your favorite(s) to be awarded the grand prize of bragging rights. And a trophy.
This year, the socially distant Chili Cook-Off allows for dozens of chilis prepared by restaurants across the region to be tested as the competition heats up for the titles of Best Meat Chili, Best Vegetarian/Vegan Chili, Best Chili Inspired Item, and The People’s Choice Chili.
Those who want to taste (and judge) the chilis of the Chili Cook-Off will need to visit the participating restaurants of their choice to order a cup o' chili, or featured chili item. Please check with each participating location about their hours and availability.
Check the Chili Cook-Off website in early February for a complete list of participating restaurants!
