Announcing our 1st Annual Chili Cook off Festival! Join in on the fun, you will be able to partake in:

Chili Tastings, Award-winning Wine, Live Music, Food Trucks, Artisan Market, Raffle Prizes, Judges, Non-profit Fundraising, AND SO MUCH MORE!

Featuring Bill Mock & The Highway 105 Band! While they play some current hits, the heart of their music is rooted in the rich tradition of the country music that filled dance halls throughout the countryside from the 50’s to 80's.

We are most excited for this event, because we will be partnering with Grimes County Animal Rescue Shelter, a non-profit that is dedicated in creating a community for the purpose of constructing an animal shelter to serve the residents of Grimes County, Texas. Their board is passionate about finding a solution for the current stray dog and cat situation that Grimes County faces.

So you think you make the best chili ever?  Then register for this fun competition!  Registration fee is $30/team. Once a team registers, they will receive an email with link for competition rules and a simple registration form to complete online. Teams can register for multiple categories.

Spectators must purchase a wristband in order to sample chili and participate in the People's Choice (PC) judging. Wristband packages include Tasting Kit and PC ballot: $15 for 5 tastes | $20 for 10 tastes.
