Chili on the Comstock and Inaugural Fireball Crawl

Virginia City
May 11, 2013 -May 12, 2013

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The 30th annual Chili on the Comstock returns to Virginia City for a weekend of fun.  Taking place along C St., the historic town's main drive, the event promises all the favorite flavors and brings a new Fireball Crawl, live music and family friendly activities.
The two-day event hosts around 40 of the best chili cookers in the west competing for a spot in the International Chili Society (ICS) World Finals later this year in Las Vegas. Competitors start from scratch on Saturday morning and a winner is picked for each day. There is also a people's choice award with winners receiving cash and “Virginia City-style” prizes.
Tickets are now on sale with tasting kits starting at $5 and the inaugural Fireball Crawl presented by Coors Light at $10 complete with a free Hot Shot – a combined shot of fire hot cinnamon whiskey and Redd’s Apple Ale.  Purchase tickets here.
In addition, a “Family Fun Zone” takes over the Delta Saloon parking lot with multiple bounce houses, face painting, music including the Chris Gardner Band and more.
