It’s that time of year again! Maxfund Animal Adoption Center will host its 20th Annual Chili Cook-off on Sunday, Feb. 23.

From 1-4 p.m., patrons and participants will take part in the chili tasting and judging process, followed by the chili winners reveal at 5 p.m. Patrons can pre-register to judge the event here, for the discounted ticket price of $10, or register at the door for $15 ($5 for children 12 years and younger).

Chili categories are Red, Green, White, Vegetarian and Celebrity Chef – a category created for local restaurants and chefs to enter their recipes. Contestants can enter their chilies here.
