Gadsden, AL- On Saturday, February 3rd, Downtown Gadsden will host the 11th Annual Chili Cook-Off. Our cooks will be on Broad Street between 4th and 6th Streets and "headquarters" will be the corner of 5th and Broad Street. There are 23 teams registered this year! The public can start purchasing tasting tickets at Noon. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. So get your taste buds ready!
Judges will be on site to do a blind sampling of all the chili recipes and choose a winner for first, second and third places. A crowd favorite will also be chosen by those who come to taste.
For the event, Broad Street will be closed from 4th – 6th Streets starting at 10 a.m. and will reopen between 2 and 3 p.m. Classic car owners are invited and encouraged to join in the festivities and park on Broad between 4th and 6th Streets.
When you’ve sampled all the chili your tummy can handle, make sure you take time to explore all of Downtown Gadsden! You never know what you might discover.
