Ritchie's (World famous) Chili Cook-Off
6:00 pm18:00

Ritchie's (World famous) Chili Cook-Off


The stage is set for one of this city's epic chili battles in the greatest community.

April 20, Ritchie’s serving up chili, beer, stand-up comedian Kathleen McGee as our MC (how cool is that?), and live band Denim Daddies.

But leave the kids at home as it's a licensed event. So plan ahead by paying for a babysitter and bringing cash for beers as this night is only $20 a ticket.

It's like getting three shows in one: a fight, a comedy act and a live band. You don't even have to enjoy chili to have a good time.

Don't forget, amongst all the laughter and entertainment, you've got a job to do. And that’s to cast your vote with four magical beans for your favourite chili.

So what are you waiting for? Buy your ticket and get ready to CHILI! aka be flatulent... 


There will be three veggie chilis and nine meat chilis as a minimum. Ingredients used in each will be displayed to help those with food allergies. We apologize if you still can't take part in eating the chili. We do try our best to accommodate everyone.

Ritchie History Walk

X2 back-to-back walks (10:30 - 12:30 and 1:00 - 3:00)

*first walk sold out*

Back by popular demand, we excited to announce we will be hosting another Historical walking tour led by history researcher and podcaster Chris Chang-Yen Phillips.

  • Did you miss last year's event? Check it out by listening here.
  • Do you have burning questions about Ritchie's history?

Edmonton's 4th Historian Laureate Chris Chang-Yen Phillips wants to help you find out the answers with a walking tour and a podcast. Maybe you've wondered what's up with the trees that got cut down on Whyte Ave, who was here 150 years ago, or whether it's true that trains ran through Mill Creek Ravine, or whether this area was ever underneath a glacier.

At 10:30 am and 1 pm on Sunday, June 10, Chris will lead a walk around the neighbourhood based on your questions. We will meet at Ritchie Community League at 10:30 am or 1 pm to start the walking tour. And later in June, highlights from the walk will be featured on his local history podcast, Let's Find Out.

Come join us for a neighbourhood walk in Ritchie and we can find out about Ritchie's history together!
