A Message From the Commitee

    Welcome to the SC State Chili Cook-off Championship and the Kegs N Eggs Competition in beautiful Belton, SC!

    As the crowds return to the city square, chili cooks, both professional and amateur, will compete for great prizes and signature trophies!   We are looking forward to sharing the culinary masterpieces that you will produce for the judges.  Good luck to each of you during these two days of International Chili Society qualifying events. 

   And thanks to you, the public tasters, who will help to choose the winners in the People’s Choice events.  Purchasing those tasting  tickets and bands benefits five charities in town who deepen our cultural ties, promote economic development,  and serve those who are seeking temporary assistance.

     The SC State Chili Cook-off Championship committee, comprised of several non-profit leadership, has been working tirelessly since last May planning this year's event. On behalf of the committee, we thank every one of you for attending this year! We look forward to meeting you in downtown Belton!

    Now, it’s time to light those fires!
