Saturday, February 4, is the date for the 15th annual Downtown Gadsden Chili Cook Off. Local teams will be putting their recipes to the taste test with on-site cooking and plenty of bragging rights on the line. The teams can begin cooking as early as 7:00am.
The public is invited to purchase taste tickets to sample the chili entries. Tickets will be available onsite for $1 each or six for $5. Chili will be ready for sampling at noon and everyone is encouraged to arrive early because the chili can run out quickly!
Judges will be sampling each participating chili to select 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash-prize winners. The public can cast their votes for the crowd favorite.
Proceeds from the event will be used to support ongoing downtown projects.
In order to receive the t-shirt, the deadline for entry is Friday, January 20.
