• Do you have a GREAT chili recipe? Are your friends and neighbors always telling you that you should enter a cook-off? Well, now is your chance! The World Open Chili Challenge is open to amateurs and experts alike. This category allows chili cooks, pro chefs and home cooks to focus on making their best chili creation outside the confines of a traditional, sanctioned chili cook-off.

    The World Open division will occur Saturday, September 28th. Competition hours, rules and regulations will be emailed to each registered Open competitor. There will be a cash prize, but perhaps best of all, the Open division at WCCC is a qualifying event for the 2024 World Food Championships!

    Space is limited in the World Open, so don’t delay. Each competitor will receive a 10x10 tented cooking space, a table and two chairs. Similar to the Pro Chili division, all cooks will be required to bring their own ingredients and cooking apparatus (propane burner), and utensils. There is a $100 registration fee for entering the World Open Chili division. A contest representative will reach out directly to each entrant for payment.
