Join us for the 8th Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off!

Paula and Nathan Huerkamp, two of the winners of last year's Vegan Chili Cook-Off

Sample homemade vegan chili at our 8th Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, February 18 from 7 to 10pm at St. Catherine’s University in the student center (Coeur de Catherine) on the third floor in the Rauenhorst Ballroom. It’s free to attend and everyone is welcome, whether they’re omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan. The event is co-sponsored by Advocating for Animals, a St. Kate’s student group.

The food goes fast, so be sure to arrive right at 7 for best selection. We’ll have two categories: bean-based and meatless meat. The first guests to arrive will get to take their pick of which set to sample and rate!

Do you have a vegan chili recipe you’d like to enter into the contest? Check out the contestant registration page to sign up.

Thanks to Reverie Cafe + Bar, The Herbivorous Butcher, Florence Wong, City Girl Coffee, Vegan East, and Vegan Essentials for their generous donations. Please support our sponsors!
