Coffman Memorial Union

It’s that time of year when we’re not quite sure if there will be snow or sunshine. How do we deal with the cold unknown?

Join other hungry Minnesotans and sample local, homemade vegan chili recipes at our 7th Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off. We promise that you will leave feeling fuller and warmer than when you arrived. Oh, and did we mention that it’s FREE to attend?

Yes, it’s free. Bring friends and spend the afternoon sampling tasty, homemade vegan chili. Everyone is welcome, whether they’re omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan. Please RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook. Use #VeganChiliMpls for the event!

This year, the event will be held on Sunday, February 28 at the Great Hall in Coffman Memorial Union. Check out this map for directions.

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. We have now filled all the contestant spots!

New this year for contestants: We’ll have two categories: traditional (bean-based with no vegan meats) and nontraditional (Let’s get creative!). This new format allow more people to enjoy more chili. Take your pick!

Thanks to the donations from Beanfields Chips, Bryant Lake Bowl, Eden Foods, Lundberg Family Farms, Peace Coffee, Pizza Luce, and Vegan Essentials. Please support our sponsors!

For more information or to sign up to volunteer for the event, contact Unny Nambudiripad at unny@exploreveg.org or 612-276-2242.
