SoNo Fest & Chili Cook-Off 2017

ABOUT THE SONO CHILI FEST & COOK-OFF:

With an all-volunteer staff of parents, teachers, and local businesses working to raise funds for arts programming at McKinley Elementary School, the eighth annual SoNo Chili Fest & Cook-Off has evolved from a neighborhood chili exchange to one of San Diego’s most

celebrated holiday traditions.

Put on in conjunction with the San Diego Ceramic Connection, who provides a generous donation and supplies the keepsake bowls for the event, the festival has raised much needed funds since its inception in 2010. With 100% of proceeds guaranteeing yearly funding for the Spanish, art, and music to hundreds of McKinley school children, this is more than just a fun foodie festival.

Dominating the border boulevards of Thorn Street and 32nd, the SoNo Fest & Chili Cook Off invites top Chefs and favorite local restaurants from North Park and South Park to compete in a classic chili cook-off, feeding crowds of nearly 20,000. While nearly 40 restaurants compete for a place in the Chili Hall of Fame, an expansive beer, cocktail and wine garden offers refreshing drinks to thirsty patrons looking to refuel, and a dedicated kids zone provides play equipment and endless entertaining. Two stages play live music throughout the day, and a food truck court allows for a respite from the chili tastings. Hosting a holiday market alongside the chili samplings, local artisans offer homemade goods and unique gifts for hungry shoppers.
