No beans about it, our 16th Jo’s Chili Cook-Off is back on Sunday, February 5 from Noon – 3 PM.
Since 2005 we’ve has hosted our annual Chili Cook-Off + Benefit to warm up the winter. This event raises money to support Free Lunch, which works to address food insecurity here in Austin. Amateur and professional culinary talent engage in a five-alarm battle for the prized chili pot. We’ll also have a host of chili-related festivities—we’re talking Quick Fire Competition, music from Jeff Hughes & Chaparral as well as the Jo’s House Band, a Raffle, and more!

Sign up to compete! 

For the non-chefs: Entry is free, so come enjoy live music and thrilling completion. If you want to taste, wristbands are $25 and available on-site. You’ll get a sample of each chili along with one ticket to vote for your favorite. Winners will be announced at 3 PM.

Special thanks to our party partners in HEB. See you on Sunday, February 5!
