The Smoky Hill Museum is seeking teams to enter the Chili Cook-off contest at the Street Fair which takes place on Sept. 24.

Entries are being sought to cook up their own unique brand of chili. The first six teams to enter will compete for the People’s Choice Award and best-decorated booth. Winners will receive a combination of cash and prizes valued at $150. The deadline to enter is Aug. 31, 2022.

Entrants must prepare a minimum of five gallons of chili. Public sampling begins at noon. In order to make this less of a burden, the Museum will provide ingredients to help each team get off to a good start. Teams will receive a generous starting kit of ingredients that includes 15 lbs. of beef, and a mess of onions and tomatoes. From there, each team can add their own unique ingredients to make the chili something special.

Online or printable entry forms and a complete set of rules and regulations may be found at under the Chili Cook-off link. To have a copy mailed to you call 785-309-5776 or email [email protected]

Completed applications and a $25 application fee must be postmarked or hand-delivered by Aug. 31, 2022, to the Smoky Hill Museum at 211 West Iron Avenue. The application fee is non-refundable.
