Chili cook-off stirs up new theme, same good ole chili

Charles City, Iowa – Friday marks the 23rd annual Great Chili Cook off in Charles City.

Chamber Director Mark Wix says it’s Community Revitalization’s longest running event.


This year’s chosen chili chefs represent the automotive industry.  Some celebrities include Steve Robel from Quality Auto Service and Jason Daniels from Daniels Auto Collision Center.

Tickets are $8 and it includes samples of seven chilies, a beverage and dessert provided by the Comet Café.  Proceeds go to Community Revitalization.

Wix says they’ve seen just about everything in the two-plus decades.


The cook off is from 11 to 1 Friday at the Columbus club.
