Home > Chili Cook Off


Shasta Riding Club is hosting a chili cook off fundraiser at Mt. Shasta Brewing Company in Weed, CA! We are inviting members of the community, businesses and community organizations, especially those that serve kids, to submit a chili entry to compete for our prizes.  The event is July 29th from 4:30-7:30 pm and we will have live music, chili tasting (and bowls of chili available to purchase), baked goods, beer available at the brewery and a kids corner with fun activities and a bouncy house! It should be a fun event and we hope to see you there!

Interested in entering? 

You’ll want to make a big pot of chili to share (4 quarts minimum!) and make or bring whatever else your chili needs to shine (tortilla chips? Corn bread? Cilantro?). Everyone who attends the event will get their own spoon, and SRC is providing the dixie cups so you can pass out samples. If you want to set up samples on a tray and circulate with guests you are welcome to do so- bring what you need!

We’ll be at the Weed Brewery by 1pm on the 29th to set up. You’re welcome to come early to set up but don’t leave your chili there till later. We can provide you with a table if you need. You’re also welcome to bring an awning. Every person and business will share one parking space with another entrant.

You should bring:

  • An extra power strip (we have some, bring one of your just in case)
  • Chairs for yourself
  • An awning if you want shade
  • The chili! Bring it in a crock pot or a way you can keep it warm. And food you want to serve with your chili

Event opens to the public at 4:30 so you’ll want to be set up before then so you can start passing out samples and maximize your votes and earn one of the cash prizes!

If you aren’t entering and just helping out our bake sale, bring the corn bread or brownies to the Weed Brewery by 4:30 on July 29th.

At arrival you can receive a donation receipt for cost of food. Just come with an estimate of how much you spent on ingredients and we will fill one out for you.

If you’re a business, use this chance for marketing! On your business table you can have brochures, business cards, signs…. just ask us if you aren’t sure if something will fit.
