4th Annual Chili Cookoff

  • Bucktown Pub 1658 West Cortland Street Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

Chili Cookoff tickets: $20 at the door



Organized by our friends over at the Bucktown Pub, the annual Chili Cookoff is back for the fourth year to raise money to fund Midtown's Christmas Basket Project!

On behalf of the families that received a Christmas basket, Hope at St. Pius parish would like to thank you for your generosity and thoughtful gesture!
— Christmas Basket Recipient

In the days leading up to Christmas, a team of Midtown staff and volunteers stuff and deliver over 325 baskets to families in need of food, clothes and toys at Christmastime. Some are MEF families, but many of the baskets to go other families in need in the communities that MEF serves.

Come by the pub for all you can eat chili, drink specials, raffles and more. Neighboring restaurants and bars compete to make the best chili. The Cookoff is a unique opportunity for local restaurants and businesses in Bucktown to come together for a common good cause!

Will Cortland Garage win the trophy for the third year in a row? Come, taste, cast your votes and find out!
