14th Annual Great Chili Cook-Off in Nuevo Vallarta

On December 6, from 4:00 – 8:00 pm, the Marina Nuevo Vallarta Malecon will be the location of the 14th Chili Cook-Off & 2nd Taste of Nuevo Vallarta, in Riviera Nayarit just outside of Puerto Vallarta.

Last year, over 400 people attended to sample the wonderful sample dishes provided by the participating restaurants and also tasting fantastic chili made by professional and non-professional contributors.

It all started 14 years ago with the first ever Great Chili Cook-Off, now it’s bigger and better. Not just chili, but Taste of Nuevo too.

Attendees may purchase sample tickets for $10 pesos. Each ticket will allow a “sample” of chili or any of the other type of food offered. Attendees may also use tickets to purchase bottled water, soda, beer, wine and Margaritas.  Music will be provided.

Net proceeds will all go to charity, evenly split between Families at the Dump and the Navy League.

Parking will be available at Marina Nuevo Vallarta and water taxis will be available from the Vallarta Yacht Club (VYC) and Paradise Village.

Exhibitors are encouraged to sign up now. Last year we had over 40 booths, we hope to have more this year.

This is one of the first opportunities of the season to expose your restaurant to hundreds of tourist and local residents.

Any questions can be directed by email or call to Rudy Trejo, Manager Vallarta Yacht Club ([email protected]. 297-2222,) or Dee Cockerham, Chairman ([email protected]. 291-5001).

      Good day Miranda. The festival is at the Marina, there really isn’t an address to the Marina because it covers a large area. Ask anyone in Nuevo to point you to the Marina and they will get you there, it’s a main center of activity in the development. The cook-off will be held on the boardwalk (Malecon) around the Marina outdoors.
