Annual West Chester Chili Cook-Off

Chili Cook-Off

On Sunday October 14, 2018, the Rotary Club of West Chester will host the 16th annual West Chester Chili Cook-Off in downtown West Chester, with proceeds going to a variety of service projects sponsored by the Club.  Since the first cook-off in 2002, the Club has raised over half a million dollars which they've used to provide grants to local non-profits, purchase winter coats to local children in need, offer scholarships to local students, provide opportunities for physically disabled children, and a variety of other worthwhile endeavors, whose very fitting motto is "Service Above Self".

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon in October than with thousands of people, young and old, as the streets of downtown West Chester come alive for an afternoon of great family fun and terrific food!

Gates open at 10:30am, rain or shine, with chili starting to be served at Noon.  The Rotary Club is currently looking for sponsors, vendors, and cooking teams, who compete for prizes and awards.  If you're interested in joining us, please visit our website at
