On the 2nd Sunday of October the streets of Downtown West Chester close for a day of food, fun and philanthropy. 50+ chili teams, comprised of restaurants, businesses, hometown cooks and non-profit organizations, set up shop right on the street and cook chili vying for the coveted People’s Choice Award (the best darn chili in Chester County). As the streets fill with the aroma of perfectly seasoned meat and beans thousands of hungry chili fans arrive to shop the amazing array of artisan vendors, visit the kid zone with their families, stop in to the local bars for a brew and most importantly sample all the chili they can eat and cast their vote for the winning recipe. As the day draws to a close and the votes are counted one lucky team is crowned the winner and in addition to bragging rights receives a cash prize of $2,500.
