Join Destination Big Bear at the annual Big Bear Chili Cook-Off! The cook-off is an ICS-Sanctioned World Qualifier Competition with over 40+ cooks competing for prizes! Join us in a good time with tasting kits, live music, kids land, adult chill garden with craft beer, wine and cocktails, as well as artisan marketplace and food vendors.

For the 2019 Chili Cook-off Destination Big Bear is proud to have teamed up with the Big Bear Visitor’s Bureau to be the stage sponsor for the event, so be sure to stop by and meet our event staff and maybe learn a little more about Destination Big Bear! We will have games and prizes for those who come to see us, as well as chances to win a cabin stay for FREE!

This event is free to the public to attend and open to all ages, making for the perfect family outing! Taking place Saturday, July 13th, 2019 from 11 AM to 5 PM (tastings end at 3 PM). Once at the event, you’ll be able to purchase tasting kits and gain access to food and drink.
