The Chili Knockout and Spicy Food Festival is coming to Atlantic City on May 21. What is it exactly ? It is a “festival dedicated to the exploration of all flavors!” This is an opportunity for culinary discovery. It’s an interactive ‘you be the judge’.
Some of the hot sauces will come from: Coney Island Saucery, Hank Sauce, Hot Graham, Fire Hiney, Frankly Deep, Hell’s Kitchen, Jersey Girl, El Diablo, Moon Goddess and Whitehouse Station.
Local restaurants will participate in Chili Knock Out, including Bourre, Cuzzie’s Pizzeria Kitchen, Duck Town Tavern and Liquors, Essl’s Dugout, Slab House, Tennessee Beer Hall, and Vagabond Kitchen and Tap House.
Some of the festival’s activities include a chili-eating contest: “7 brave contestants will be invited to the Chili Knock-Out and Spicy Food Fest stage to test their resolve, eating some of the hottest chilies known to man. ! The survivor gets a $100 cash prize and bragging rights, everyone else gets a spicy snack!” You must be 21 and “sane” to participate.
A $5,000 prize is offered to the chili winner. $2,500 (and a championship belt) goes to the winner, while the remaining $2,500 goes to the chef’s chosen charity.
There will also be an artists’ village, various vendors, signature cocktails and craft beers.
Tickets are $25 if you want to participate in the chili judging and $15 without judging.
The event is outdoors at 114 S. New York Ave. in the orange loop.
