Who We Are

Held annually during the weekend after Labor Day in Edgerton, Wisconsin, Chilimania is home to the Wisconsin State Championship CASI-Sanctioned Chili Cook-Off, a Traditional Chili Cooking Contest, and a Salsa Contest. The weekend-long event also features live music on Friday night and all-day Saturday, a Best Bloody Mary contest, and more!

You’re invited to taste some of these delicious concoctions and help choose the People’s Choice! Arrive in time for the Public Chili Tasting at 3 PM Saturday, grab a cup, spoon, and ballot, and get tasting!

Chilimania is 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote the Edgerton business community, social responsibility, and to raise funds to support the education of our youth. We’ve raised more than $200,000 since 1990!
