When Is the Chili Cook-Off?

Chili cook-offs happen all year long all over the country. However, some of the most popular take place in the fall, including the annual World Championship Chili Cook-Off in September.

Chili is a staple in Tex-Mex cuisine, so it’s no surprise that Texas has some of the most popular chili cook-offs. Chili cook-offs are hosted in every state and every region, though. Some of the most popular cook-offs are the Texas Chilifest, the Texas Chili Cook-Off, the Gatlinburg Chili Cook-Off, and the Terlingua Championship Cook-Off.

This multi-day food and music festival, held on the first weekend of November, devotes its last day to what they call the “granddaddy of all chili cook-offs.”
