4th annual Orlando Chili Cook-off benefiting the Special Olympics Florida
On Saturday February 9, 2013 “The City Beautiful” will host the 4th Annual Orlando Chili Cook-off, produced by Events for Change, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that operates under a “good times for a great cause” philosophy.
Everyone from foodies, beer connoisseurs, music fans, and families to folks just looking for an entertaining time enjoy this spectacular event centered around tasty chili, great music, and good times!
To date this event has raised almost $100,000 for local charities and this year’s event will benefit Special Olympics Florida.
The location this year will be Festival Park – Orlando’s premier location for festivals and events – located next to Orlando executive airport and just two blocks south Fashion Square Mall.
Loyal attendees have come to expect the cook-off to offer a good time, for a great cause, and this year the event has a few exciting elements in addition to its standards of live music all day, free chili samples, a huge kid’s zone, and of course a great time.
Beer selection has been beefed-up with the addition of a Craft Beer Tent. The event also has an exciting new component which will give members from the Central Florida community another way to really become involved in the fun.
From the people that bring you the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, The Orlando Chili Cook-off will host Orlando’s first and only World Chili Eating Challenge! Some of the biggest and baddest eaters in the world, including the renowned eater, Joey Chestnut will be among the competitors. There are still three spots open for Orlando locals to ‘chow for charity’ and compete for the total purse of $3500, with first prize winning $1750! Tickets are $7 in advance online until 2/8 and $12 day-of.
