The 7th Annual Rootin’-Tootin’ Chili Cookoff is just around the corner! On Saturday, February 18th, 51 teams will compete for the title of “Grand Chili Champion.”
The Rootin’-Tootin’ Chili Cookoff is the largest chili competition in Columbia, and is open to any team that wants to test their secret chili recipe. Teams are also encouraged to decorate their booths and dress up in themes. Teams compete for the Grand Chili Champion, People’s Choice, the Biggest Bowl, and the Best Booth awards. All proceeds from this family friendly event benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Columbia, a youth development organization that provides after-school programs for all kids.
