The Tri-State Open Chili Championship celebrates 30 years of helping make wishes come true. Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and the cook-off continues until the chili runs out. Bring the entire family for this indoor chili tasting extravaganza. Purchase a cup and take your chance at trying some of the best chili concoctions the Texas Panhandle (and beyond) has to offer. Enjoy live entertainment and don't forget to visit the silent auction. All proceeds from the event will go to Make-A-Wish North Texas in support of their mission to grant more wishes in the Texas Panhandle.
