Held annually in March on St. George Island, Florida
2021 Update: We will be moving forward with a scaled back version of Chili Cookoff this year. After consideration of all factors, we have confirmed that we will be GOING FORWARD with a scaled back version of the Chili Cookoff Weekend! Though we will not have the big Chili Cookoff crowd gathering competition, band, live auction, or beer vendors on Saturday, we WILL still have many of our great events. The golf tournament will be happening on Thursday at beautiful St James Bay Golf Course. Instead of the crowded live and silent auctions, we will be hosting an ONLINE auction! Make your bids online to win some great auction items! Saturday will feature the Red Pepper Run, a 5K and fun run for your whole family. Best of all on Saturday instead of the big cookoff, auction and bands, we will be hosting a CHILI SALE! Stop by, meet our firefighters and see the firetrucks. We will be selling chili, chili dogs, hotdogs and more in the lighthouse parking lot. This will be a pickup/drive through event.
As you may know, the Chili Cookoff is not just an awesome weekend on St George Island, it’s also a VERY BIG portion of our SGIVFD budget and we must find a way to keep the fire department funded. Please consider attending these events, sending a donation, or contributing money.
