This local chili challenge is a Steamboat Springs tradition. Restaurants and citizens alike have been battling for the distinction of having the best chili in town for decades! The panel of expert judges will conduct blind tastings to determine the best of each category, but the real competition is for our People’s Choice Award. Attendees can purchase a tasting kit for $10 and cast their vote for their favorite.
If tasting the best chili in town is not enough for you, dance to music by local musicians at the 2020 Downtown Chili Challenge. Play some yard games, enjoy an adult beverage or try your hand at roping. You can also cheer on our local boy Scout troop as they encourage their calf to poop in just the right spot at the annual Muffin Plop. All proceeds from the Plop benefit the Boy Scouts.
