Chili Cook Participant Entry Fee: FREE – NO CHARGE

How It Works

We are very excited to provide objective judging by using the double blind style of judging that we introduced seven years ago. Chili entries are collected from teams in unidentified containers, labeled randomly with letters and taken to the judging area. Sealed envelopes contain the team ID without names attached.

The Castro Valley Chili Cook Off will use two rounds of judging to ensure accurate results.

Separately, by popular demand, we continue to also award the People’s Choice award to the team that collects the most tasting tickets.
