About Rockabilly Chili Fundraiser (from website)

Taking place on Sunday, March 6th, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Rockabilly Chili Fundraiser is a chili competition that pits over 50 Milwaukee restaurants, cafes, and caterers against one another to determine the city’s best chili as voted on by event attendees. Once again, there will be chili pepper races in the mold of Miller Park sausage races, Artist Working in Education’s children’s area, and music. Awards are given to winners in five different categories: best meat, best vegetarian, most unique chili, best heat, and best vendor display/presentation.

Advance tickets are $12 and include 4 chili samples. Additional Chili sampling tickets can be purchased at the event for $1 each. Bring two or more non-perishable food items and donated them to the Hunger Task Force and you’ll receive two additional sample tickets.
