The Official New York State Cook-Off for the International Chili Society (ICS). Includes chili sampling, judging, cash prizes, amusements, and live entertainment. Winners chosen from Historic Richmond Town will go to the world championships!
The rivalry is real. The competition heated. Teams may dress as cowboys, some wear funny hats, and some have wacky names, but the competition is serious business as the region’s best chili-heads take to the bridges to battle the top cooks of New York at the ninth annual NYC Chili Cookoff at Historic Richmond Town.
Chiliheads are quick to say that chili is a cuisine of the people. And the judging reflects that philosophy. The International Chili Society (ICS) recommends skipping professional judges and stacking the judges’ table with community members who appreciate good food. As the one and only cookoff in New York City that’s sanctioned by the International Chili Society, the competition entries and the judging can be hotter than the spices.
Historic Richmod Town puts it's own spin on the competition with activities for all ages! Taste authentic recipes, play a spice game in a 19th century General Store, help make soap bubbles as big as a basketball, play with folk toys and watch the tradepeople demonstrate wares of the time!
Each children's ticket comes with an event wide scavenger hunt to keep the little ones entertained all day long!
