Second Annual Chili Fest

Second Annual Chili Fest

Get ready for the second annual Chili Fest happening on March 3rd at Wolfhead Distillery!

Last year's event was an absolute blast, with over 1100 Windsorites coming out to try the best chili in the county. It was such a hit that we're bringing it back with even more fun. The event runs from 12 pm to 6 pm, with Chili tasting and Voting starting at 1pm



This time, Border City BBQ is hosting the chili competition with 8 enthusiastic competitors ready to spice things up. All batches of chili are prepared over charcoal or live fire. No pellet smokers, electric burners, or propane are allowed.

Join us in our open-air parking lot and check out the competitors' booths, fire pits, games, an outdoor bar serving Wolfhead favourites, loaded Caesars, and a hot cocoa bar.


Outdoors you can find our ticket booth (For wolfhead cocktails & outdoor bites), Outdoor hot cocoa bar, signature bar, chili competitors, fire pits, lawn games, live music, & restrooms.

Inside you can find our restaurant open for meals, retail shop, Caesar lounge/ warming area, signature bar, restrooms Plus, enjoy live music from 1 pm to 4 pm by Two Track Mind Jazz!

The event runs from 12 pm to 6 pm, with Chili tasting and Voting starting at 1pm

What's new this year? It's a ticketed event: Each ticket includes 8 - 4oz samples of the best Windsor-Essex chili. (There are no physical tickets. Please be prepared with your email confirmation upon arrival) And if you're still hungry, don't worry!

Wolfhead's full menu will still be available indoors.


The proceeds from ticket sales go towards covering the costs of the chefs' ingredients for their chili as well as contributing to the final prize.
