2024 Chili Tour

Event by St. Joe Today

Fri. January 26, 2024 | 5:00pm - 8:00pm

Warm up with us on Friday, January 26 as downtown St. Joe hosts a Chili Tour. Participating locations or "Chili Stops" will play host as you have the opportunity to try their best recipes.

Chili Tour Maps will be available for purchase at the St. Joe Today Welcome Center (301 State Street) from 12:00p-7:45p on Friday, January 26. Maps will also be available for purchase at The Market (301 Main Street) from 5:00p-7:45p. It costs $5 per participant which includes a Chili Tour Map that doubles as a voting ballot.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen.

A judged portion of this event will give participating locations a chance to showcase their chili in front of a panel of judges from the Southwest Michigan culinary scene. The winning location will host the Chili Pepper trophy for the remainder of the year until the next tour!

Participants vote for their FAVORITE chili recipe. The winning location will host the People's Choice Chili Pepper trophy for the remainder of the year until the next contest. To vote, please turn in your Chili Map by Noon on Saturday, January 27!
