Volunteer to help at the Chili Cook-off 

Sign up to compete in our Big Blowout Chili Cook-off--this year, for the first time, we'll be adding competitions for brownies and cornbread too!. Join the pros, hobbyists, and those who simply like to dream big in the kitchen.

Vote for your favorite chili, brownies, and cornbread and purchase your new favorite chili bowl or whiskey cup from the sales gallery. Try your hand at the wheel from 1:30 – 4 pm.

Talk with Featured Artist Chris Cooley. Shop for a whiskey cup (or four) made by a selection of beloved local artists.

We would also like to thank Longfellow Grill on Lake Street, Captain Ken’s Foods in St. Paul, the wonderful Netti Colón of Red Hen Gastrolab, our dear friends at Zipps Liquor, and Sociable Cider Werks in Northeast Minneapolis. We truly value your commitment to our clay community!
