Festival Info

Chili On The Green, presented by The Kiwanis Club of Tulsa and sanctioned by the International Chili Society, is The Official State of Oklahoma Chili Championship . On October 15, 2022, chili cooks from across the country will be competing for 1st place and a spot in the 2023 International Chili Society World Championship.  Adding to the great chili we will also have live entertainment including the finals of our city-wide Kiwanis Karaoke Contest and a performance by “TNB” who will be playing classic tunes from the 70’s and 80’s.  There will also be plenty of Cold Beer ($5 tall boys), water, food trucks and more. In addition to the chili pro’s we will also have Corporate Chili Teams competing for the People’s Choice Award for best amateur chili.  The big party vibe is completed with all chili teams competing for the People’s Choice best presentation Award.  Each chili team has a theme and decorates their space accordingly.  As you can imagine this goes from very subtle to the completely outrageous!  But even with the outrageous you can rest assured Chili on the Green is a family friendly event!

Admission is FREE with “All the Chili You Can Eat Tasting Kits” available at 1 for $10 and 2 for $15.  Obviously we will only have so much chili on hand, but we know how much we do have.  We will do our best to limit the number of tasting kits sold so that everybody who buys a tasting kit will get plenty of chili.  Tasting Kits go on sale at 4:30pm and Tasting starts at 5pm
