The Annual MVY Radio Big Chili Contest is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year on Martha's Vineyard! More than 25 professional and amateur chili makers vie for the title of best chili in several categories. In addition to trophies and bragging rights, the Big Chili Contest brings together friends for one of the most unique parties you'll ever attend. There's music from a mariachi band, popular New England musicians and all the chili you can eat! All of this great fun is for the benefit of the Red Stocking Fund which buys clothing, toys and necessities for children in need.
Buses pick up attendees at the SSA terminal in Vineyard Haven to bring them to the Chili Contest and return them back to the SSA terminal after the Contest is over, free of charge.
This New England tradition is a 21+ event.
