A Jasper in January classic favorite! Fantastic local, original chili recipes by competing teams themed and in costume.
This 28-year-old chili cooking content contest requires teams to make the best chili from scratch. » The chili judges determine that no ingredients can be pre-cooked or chopped prior to the start. » To make things a little more challenging - no beans are allowed.
Competitors often entertain spectators by donning costumes and there have been a variety of creative themes in the past.
The Chili Cook off event sells out fast.
