Downtown Kalamazoo's Annual Chili Cook-Off is a free, community event and is how we've stayed warm on a cold Saturday in January for the past 14 years. Also, back by popular demand, commemorative tasting spoons! Pick yours up for only $5 at your first stop of the day, Cook-Off Headquarters, Consumers Credit Union on the Mall.  Here is where you'll start your quest to find the best chili of the year.  You can also get a map/passport that will guide you through the many chili stops, a Chili Bingo card with a chance to win fantastic prizes and voting instructions!

2019 chili sampling is available at each of the locations listed on our site, while the chili lasts. Stop at any one of these businesses and enjoy a sampling of some of the best and most unique chili around. Some sites will even offer vegan and vegetarian options! Then, vote for your favorite, and check out our Facebook feed to see who wins. See you there!
