Capitol Area's Premier Chili Cook-off
Formerly the Holy Cross Chili Cook-off, the West Sacramento Chili Cook-off is in its 4th year, and has quickly become the premier chili competition in the Sacramento and Yolo counties area! With top restaurants and chefs from the area sampling their best chili the event sells out quickly.
The West Sacramento Chili Cook-off features a chili cook off competition (industry) with unlimited tastings for attendees, and includes a cash bar, over silent auction items and a door prize raffle. Judging is based 50% on popular vote, and 50% on by a panel of judges. The winner get a trophy, but most of all bragging rights for the next 12 months.
The cook-off is a fundraiser for Our Lady of Grace (OLG), and raises funds for the unique school that serves approximately 300 students in transition kindergarten through eighth grade in the communities of West Sacramento, Woodland, Natomas, the Pocket, downtown Sacramento and Elk Grove. Funds from the West Sacramento Chili Cook-off will be used to bring outdated items up to current codes and standards.
