Coffman Memorial Union

Join other hungry folks and sample local, homemade vegan chili recipes at our 10th Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off. This year there will also be live music by the Mere Kats! Tickets will be available for sale at the door.

Bring friends and spend the evening sampling tasty, homemade vegan chili. Everyone is welcome, and it’s a great way to introduce omnivores to delicious vegan food! The chili goes fast, so be sure to arrive right at 6 for best selection. Use #VeganChiliMpls when you share about the event on social media! You can invite friends using Facebook.

This year, the event will be held on February 23rd in the spacious great hall of Coffman Union. The hall is wheelchair accessible, and there is ample paid parking in the East River Road Garage.

Think you have what it takes to compete in the cook-off? Bring a batch of your vegan chili and get ready for some competition! Cool prizes are to be won. Check out our registration page for more contestant details and to sign up.

This year, we’ll again have multiple categories of chili. This format allows more people to enjoy more chili. The first guests to arrive will get to take their pick of which set to sample and rate!

Volunteers are critical to the event’s success––sign-up here.

All contestants and volunteers are expected to follow these food safety guidelines.
