New York City Chili Cook-off
April 27 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15
Make your way to Staten Island’s Historic Richmond Town to be part of the 9th annual official New York City Chili Cook-off; the only cook-off in NYC sanctioned by the International Chili Society. Sample them all and then cast your vote to determining the People’s Choice Award winners. The judging panel will award cash prizes in several other categories; winners go to the world championships! The family-oriented event includes chili sampling, judging, kids’ activities and live entertainment.
Historic Richmond Town puts it’s own spin on the competition with activities for all ages! Taste authentic recipes, play a spice game in a 19th century General Store, help make soap bubbles as big as a basketball, play with folk toys and watch the tradepeople demonstrate wares of the time!
Each children’s ticket comes with an event wide scavenger hunt to keep the little ones entertained all day long!
Tickets are $15 for adults, $8 for children (up to age 12), and $11 for military and seniors. The Cook-off starts at noon and runs to 4pm, with chili tasting from 1pm to 3pm.
