2107 Chili Contest


Besides playing host to over a dozen professional and amateur ice carvers from up and down the east coast, the Fire & Ice Festival features the best professional chili cooks around vying for the Peoples Choice Award for the finest chili in Burlington County.

The contest starts at 11am and ends once all the chili has been tasted.

NEW THIS YEAR! Everyone will be housed in a heated tent located at the corner of Washington & High Street (where the Christmas Tree has been).

VIP ticket holders will be allowed to enter the tent for priority tasting at 11am, along with admission to the Beer Tent that will be located next door.

 The general public will be admitted starting at Noon.  Usually the chili is all gone by 2pm.

 Tasting the Chili is free to the public.  Voting is encouraged, but not required.

Anyone interested in voting can pick up one free ballot. Additional ballots will be offered for a $1 donation to support the Fire & Ice Festival.
