February 24th-25th 2018

Texas State Open Chili Championship

Texas-size salute to the official state dish will be served up at the Texas Open Chili Cookoff, Saturday and Sunday, February 24 and 25, 2018, at Traders Village San Antonio. This event is held under the auspices of the Chili Appreciation Society International (CASI). Chili cooks from all across Texas will join the many “chiliheads” (as they affectionately call themselves) to vie for the top honors in Chili and Junior Chili. On Saturday the 24th, CASI Chili Entry Fee is $35 and Junior Chili Competition is $10. On Sunday Feb 25th, it’s the Day After CCO and Entry Fee is $20 Chili Grind Only.

The cooks have a great time but the main reason for having the chili cookoff is to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Support Center. The past three years we have raised $11,000 and we look forward to supporting this very worthwhile program again. Join us at Traders Village and support this great program.
