Nevins 4th Annual Royal Chili Cook-Off

Join us for our 4th Annual Royal Chili Cook-Off, October 23, 2021, starting at 12 pm. Competitors will be serving up 14 of the best chili dishes you’ve ever had paired with some of Charlotte’s best local beer – all to benefit Nevins participants. There will be fabulous raffle prizes, music, great company, and tons of fun.

Each ticket covers the cost of attendance, an event t-shirt, one beer, one raffle ticket, access to chili tasting, and two voting tickets (one for the traditional and one for the alternative chili style category). Also featured will be artwork available for purchase, created by our very own Nevins participants.

We are currently still accepting competitor entries and sponsors. If interested, please email development@nevinsinc.org for more info.
