(Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation media release):
Cook and compete, or just come to eat.
Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation plays host to the Chili-Fest Cook Off presented by Courtesy Ford and Lincoln Rome on Saturday, November 6 at Ridge Ferry Park.
Registration is now open for teams to put their chili recipes to the test to see who has the best chili in Rome. Cost of registration is $50 per recipe with a max of two recipes.
Chili-Fest is open to the general public on Saturday, November 6 at 10 am. We invite everyone to come out and participate in the People’s Choice Award while following COVID protocols. Entry for the public is free but participating in the tastings requires a small fee.
First place of the judges’ choice receives a cash award, a cool keepsake award and bragging rights for the best chili in Rome. Second and third places take home a trophy and prize money. Winners from the People’s Choice category will receive trophies for first through third places.
Teams can register by going to rfpra.com/chilifest and downloading the application or by visiting our main office at 1 Shorter Ave. For all questions or information regarding Chili-Fest, contact Lindsey Jones at
Alongside the chili cook off, Parks and Recreation is hosting an adult cornhole tournament. Males or females can enter as a doubles team and compete in the bracket style contest. First and second place teams will receive trophies. Registration for the corn hole tournament is $20 per team.
