About the Annual Utah
Firefighter Chili Cook Off
It is time to prepare for your 8th Annual Utah Firefighter Chili Cook-off. This event was a huge success last year and it will be even bigger and better this year.
Saturday, October 10th – The Shops at South Towne Mall
10450 South State St.
11 AM – 3 PM
Last year there were over 13 teams participating. This year we hope to bring 20 to 30 teams competing for the coveted “Battle of the Axe” trophies. They will be awarded to the teams who have been judged for the Best Chili, Best Booth and largest sum of donations. There will be a panel of judges assembled to judge the event, and this year, we have added a “People’s Choice Award” for the best chili as decided by the public.
The feedback we’ve received from last year’s participants has been very positive and that 2020 has been highly anticipated. The most successful teams, last year, were able to obtain donations for recipe ingredients, building materials for the booth, and monetary donation that went towards the total team donation. Don’t hesitate to ask your community businesses to donate in your jurisdiction. We have found they were happy to help their firefighters engage in this great event and to be a part of this amazing charity.
This year it is encouraged that Fire Departments bring corporate sponsors and outside donations so the Burn Camp will continue and to provide the organization with the financial help they need to keep their Camp funded in the years to come. Here are some of this year’s sponsors.
