Red Gold Chili Cook-Off

About Red Gold Chili Cook-Off

Fall is the perfect weather for a steaming bowl of chili, and at the Red Gold Chili Cook-off, you can have your fill from more than 30 chili varieties. Co-sponsored by the Elwood Chamber of Commerce, this spicy showdown features one of the area's biggest agricultural products—tomatoes. Every recipe is required to use Red Gold tomatoes, one of Indiana's own local companies. From sweet to spicy and everything in between, competitors serve up their best chili recipes to judges and the general public. Visitors can also enjoy activities ranging from shopping to live music in historic downtown Elwood. This event is held each year in early October.
