ChiliFest - past

Join us for the 19th annual Webster's Best ChiliFest!

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Webster Groves High School

The ChiliFest is one of our organization's largest fundraisers. The event consists of multiple chilies, donated by various restaurant and amateur contestants. Each is entered into the contest. The night of Chilifest, everyone is given a sample of each chili and is then asked to vote for their favorite (one restaurant and one amateur.) The restaurant winner then competes against the winner of the Kirkwood Chili contest the next day at the Turkey Day Game. The winner is announced at half time of the Turkey Day game.
