Chili Cook Off in Downtown Franklin

Chili Cook Off in Downtown Franklin

The Ninth Annual Chili Cook-Off in Downtown Franklin is Saturday Oct. 29, 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m. (or until the chili lasts)!

Ten teams are competing for the title of best chili, both in the People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice categories.

Tennessee Commerce Bank and Bob Parks Realty are the presenting sponsors, with gold status support by Taylor Made Smiles and Five Points Roofing Company.

Cooking up a storm will be The Daily Dish, Boxwood Bistro, The Pink Gala, Merridee’s Breadbasket, Bob Parks Realty, St. Philip Catholic Church, Lorraine’s Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, Franklin Firefighters Association L3758 and the Franklin City Club.

Tickets are just $5 per person to sample all 10 chilies.

Hot dogs, chips and drinks are also available at the Chili Cook-off tent. Everyone tasting the chilies receive a 2 ounce serving of each chili and then vote for their favorite.  At the same time a panel of judges also taste tests the recipes and decide on their favorite. Awards will also be given for Best Booth Design and Team Spirit.

The great news is the BBQ competition won’t really gear up until after the Chili Cook-off is complete, so you can enjoy both!

Other great sponsors are Buerger, Moseley & Carson PLC, LeAnne Constantine, RE/MAX Elite, Brand Mortgage, The Cellar, Crutcher & Associates, Brentwood Pediatrics, County Mayor Rogers Anderson, State Rep. Charles Sargent, The TMA Group, Grassland Car Care, Nashville Pizza Co., Alday Communications, Sperry’s of Cool Springs, Signs by Tomorrow, and The Williamson Herald.
