PNA Hall

Join other hungry Minnesotans and sample vegan chili at our 9th Annual Vegan Chili Cook-Off. Rate your favorites and help choose the winners! This year, we’ll have music by The Sunshapes!

Get your tickets today!

Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased in advance in sets of two or at the door in any quantity. Get in for free if you volunteer.

You can also register to be a cook-off contestant on the registration page. (The entry fee includes admission to the event for up to four members of your team.)

Everyone is welcome, whether they’re omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan. The food goes fast, so be sure to arrive right at 6 for the best selection.

This year, we’ll again have two categories: bean-based and meatless meat. This format allows more people to enjoy more chili. The first guests to arrive will get to take their pick of which variety to sample and rate.

Please RSVP and invite your friends using the Facebook event page. Use #VeganChiliMpls when you share about the the event on social media!

This year, the event will be held at the PNA Hall (Polish National Alliance) in Northeast Minneapolis. Check out this map for directions. Unfortunately, the building does not have an elevator, and attendees will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs.

Think you have what it takes to be a contestant?

Bring a batch of your vegan chili and get ready for some competition! Cool prizes are to be won. Sign up today!
