Chili Challenge

For all the latest information on Chili Challenge, visit our website or like our event Facebook page.

Chili Challenge is an event to generate community and financial support for Boys & Girls Club of Rochester. We expect to have 3,000+ attendees sampling chilies from over 25 participants. Participants will include local businesses, restaurants, and other community representatives. The event will offer family activities, live music, decorated booths, and a variety of chilies and other foods to enjoy.

After growing success in previous years, we are thrilled to bring back the Homebrew Competition. Many local beer enthusiasts will offer samples of their home-brewed beer for tasting, side-by-side with Rochester’s professional brewing companies. 

We are currently looking for enthusiastic volunteers to serve in all event planning capacities. If you'd like to be a part of the fun and excitement of Chili Challenge 2018, please contact Lori Trotman at 507-226-0107 or

Thank you for making our 2017 event a success!
