Event Details

Forty years of Chili on the Comstock is definitely something to celebrate! Join us May 20-21 along with top chili cooks from around the region to partake in what has become a warm and hearty spring tradition in Virginia City. Combined with a Craft Beer Tour featuring pours from our local saloons and award-winning craft breweries, it’s the most delicious and satisfying way to kick off summer in the Reno-Tahoe region.

Chili cookers are competing to win your vote for the best chili and people’s choice awards. Rejoice at the numerous varieties to sample as the cooks compete for a spot in the International Chili Society World Finals.

New this year, enter The Great Fire – Hot Chili Pepper Eating Challenge! See how hot you can get with this spicy challenge for the chance to be crowned the Chili Eating Champion.

But wait, there’s more! What pairs better with chili than a refreshing beer? The Chili on the Comstock Craft Beer Tour is also happening from 11 am to 4 pm on both days of the event.

Make a weekend of it! Plan ahead and book a room. View Virginia City’s lodging options here.
