We are happy to announce the 12th Annual Gold Star Chili Cook-Off at Findlay Market! We’re heating things up, and mixing them up too, at our annual Chili Cook-Off. We’re adding more activities throughout the Market that day, with more hot stuff to sample and for sale. Plus cooking demos, craft beer, recipes and some great giveaways.

Join us as we bring the heat to your great public market!

  • Winners announced at Noon
  • Public tasting immediately following until it's gone (and it goes fast!)

The Chili Cook-Off contest is limited to 25 competitors. Please click here to download an entry form. (We've reached our limit of 25 competitors but you can still get on the waiting list!)
