Annual Chili Cook-Off

Annual Chili Cook-Off

We are excited to announce that our first annual Chili Cook-Off in 2023 was a huge success.  We had 21 pots of chili form cooks across the San Luis Valley.  And over 100 people came to taste the chili and vote on their favorite.  

All proceeds of the event go to Care Camps, a non-profit organization that raises money to send children with cancer and their families to camps free of charge. At these medically supervised camps, children have the opportunity to make friends, connect with nature, and just be a kid.  In 2023 we raised $4,000 for Care Camps. 

The 2024 Cook-Off will be on Saturday September 7th, at the Alamosa KOA.  All chili types are welcome.  To register your chili, call 719-589-9757. 

This is a family event with music, a playground, and lots of chili for tasting!  When you are done voting for your favorite chili, you can make some s’mores at the community firepit.  

See you there!
