ChiliFest in the SouthSide Arts District is an annual festival celebrating the flavor of our local community through food and fun.

Saturday, October 21
12-4:00 PM
Admission: $30

Enjoy a walk around Downtown South Bethlehem during the festival as you sample over twenty homemade chilies from our local restaurants and businesses who are competing your vote, which will determine who will win the title of Best Chili! This year’s competition winners will win a feature in Lehigh Valley Food Magazine and the coveted Chili Pepper trophy, handmade by a local artist in ArtsQuest’s Glass Studio at the Banana Factory.

After you complete the chili trail, vote for your favorite chili to decide who will capture victory. Then stick around to hear the winners announced at 4:30 PM at Molly’s Irish Grille & Sports Pub at 4 E. 4th Street, Bethlehem.
