A Great Way To Experience Medicine Hat

The 29th annual chilli cook-off is a great opportunity to mingle with locals, create lasting memories and try some killer chilli! The event is open to all ages and only costs 5 dollars a bowl. The cookoff is hosted by the CCDA (City Centre Development Agency)  in Downtown Medicine Hat on July 21, 2018. Beginning at 12 pm, you’ll be able to taste flavours of chefs and self-proclaimed foodies, as they compete for the Best Chili and Salsa award. 5 dollars gets you a bowl, spoon and as much chilli as you can eat (or until the pots run out).
