Presented by BUSH’S® Beans, the 55th World Chili Championship Cook-off will offer tourists and residents three full days of fun that can satisfy the whole family’s appetite!
The 55th World Chili Championship Cook-off (WCCC), held by The International Chili Society (ICS), will take place September 23rd through 25th at the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place in Myrtle Beach.
General Admission to this event is FREE!
Aside from the 500+ flavors of chili to choose from, activities like the Family Fun Zone, cornhole tournament, and hot sauce/wing eating contest will keep the kids entertained. And for the more mature crowd, several decorated beer gardens with options such as seltzers, imports, craft, and domestic will refresh attendees' palates. All while local and national music acts fill the beach air with lively vibrations from country and rock artists.
This event is great for chili lovers dying to taste award-winning chili!
You can participate in the People’s Choice Judging at the cook-off by tasting any five of our competition teams’ chili and voting for your favorite one. If you want to taste more than five, don’t worry, attendees can purchase as many tasting tickets as their appetite desires.
