Belleville Chili Cookoff!

Chili Cookoff

Every year the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce hosts one of Belleville, Illinois favorite autumn events, the annual Chili Cook-off! Local organizations, restaurants, individuals and businesses compete to see who serves up the tastiest, spiciest and most delicious chili in town.

Located on East and West Main Street in Downtown Belleville, the annual Chili Cookoff features over sixty vendors and organizations. Enjoy sample sizes to compare and judge for yourself or go all out with bowls of chili and much much more!

You’ll be blown away by the festive and friendly crowds, great live entertainment and other fun stuff.

The Belleville Chili Cookoff is one of the most effective fundraisers for many of the non-profit organizations serving up their chili. All of the profits from purchases at each booth go to the vendor or organization that runs the booth.

Try them all and vote in the People’s Choice contest for your favorite chili for $1 per vote. Proceeds from the People’s Choice award are donated to the Community Interfaith Food Pantry in Belleville.
