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.
