Cook-Off Team Guidelines

Cook-off Team Requirements: Cook-off teams must cook judged chili at the event. Teams are also required to bring at least fifteen (15) gallons of chili for tasting/People's Choice Award. This chili may be prepared before the cook-off and may be different from judged chili. Teams must be ready to prove they brought the required amount of chili. 


Unauthorized Vendors or Cook-Off Teams: Those vendors or teams who have not registered and paid the booth fee will be ushered off the event site by Pflugerville Police Officers. This includes those who walk and hand out information, or try to sell products of any kind while walking through the crowds, or attempting to set up a booth, or standing within the event site to sell. Unauthorized vendors will be easily identified as those not wearing the Chili Pfest event credentials, issued to those who have been accepted as a vendor or cook-off team and paid the 2016 Pfall Chili Pfest fees. If a team's name is not on the Registration List at check-in on event morning, that means the appropriate fees were not paid nor the team accepted into the festival and therefore, should not plan to set up or participate.


How to know you are accepted as a cook-off team: A "Notice of Acceptance" will be sent to the designated Team Captain by email once the team's application is processed and approved. A full list of instructions, site map and parking permits will be emailed to each Cook-Off Team within the two weeks before the event occurs. If a team has not received a "Notice of Acceptance," it has not been admitted to the event. No day-of admission as a Cook-Off Team is permitted. Please call 512-990-6113 with any questions.
