The Chili Queens Chili Cook-Off

May the best chili win!

In this unconventional interpretation of a historical event, competitors from all over put their chili recipes to the test.

From secret family recipes to award winning techniques, competitors lay it on the line to prove their chili is the best.

The first place winner of this competition will be taking home a BELT to show everyone who the champ really is! 

Each chili must be represented by a queen . . . Being glamorous won’t win you this competition!

We are looking for outfits that redefine the word tacky . . . The man or woman who can get the crowd to say “wow that’s tacky!” will be given the official Whoochie award.

Come enjoy refreshing cocktails and the intoxicating energy of the legendary Bonham Exchange dance floor at this one-of-a-kind event!

This event is for ADULTS 18 years-of-age and older.

The Happy Foundation is dedicated to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; LGBT history; and encouraging contemporary art.
