This was your chance to be one of the judges in the coveted 11th annual Chili Cook-Off. The official chili passports ($7) were available at any of the participating restaurants and gave you access to Vernon's tastiest chili recipes on Saturday, February 15th from 12-3 pm.

Participants toured downtown restaurants and cafes and picked their favourite for the People's Choice and Chili Spirit Awards. Official judges and chili connoisseurs were also out tasting to award the Judges' Choice Award. New for 2020! In partnership with the Elk's Lodge, there was a massive bonfire and marshmallow roast near the corner of 30 St. & 32 Ave. during the event.

50% of ticket revenue was in support of the Archway Society for Domestic Peace. Tickets for 2021 will be available for purchase at participating eateries starting on January 15 while quantities last:
