Vendor Participation Criteria
We encourage all vendors to get into the spirit of our Chili Festival by decorating their tables and dressing staff in “Country Flare” (cowboy boots, denim, cowboy hats, overalls, etc.). Awards will be presented for “Best Theme” and “Best Attire.”
As an added benefit, we will provide vendors with 2 event t-shirts and tasting wristbands to sample all of the delicious fare available at the event.
Please let us know if your restaurant or business would like to donate a gift certificate for the event raffle. We hope to use the raffle to raise additional funds for patients in need, and would sincerely appreciate any gift certificate donations!
Judging and Awards
Notes: Only chili, cornbread and chocolate chip cookies will be judged. Food served other than chili and cornbread is subject to approval by Premier Cares Foundation. Vendors may serve up to 2 types of chili at their station (i.e. one vegetarian, one meat), and may submit one type of chili for judging in each category – vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Premier will provide tasting cups and spoons to vendors to serve their samples, however if samples require different serving containers it is the responsibility of the vendor to provide them.
