2019 Chili Crawl

Part of the Sturgeon Spectacular!

Feeling "chili" from all that time on the ice? Celebrate the Sturgeon Spectacular with a walk in Downtown Fond du Lac for the 10th Annual Chili Crawl being held Saturday, February 9th, 2019.

For just $10, crawlers can taste different chili concoctions made by our downtown businesses. The downtown business voted into the top spot gets the bragging rights of being called the year’s best chili!

200 first come, first serve tickets will go on sale starting January 4th at Hopper's Silk Screening & All-Star Trophy (77 N. Main St.). When they're gone, they're gone! (Cash or check only.)

On the morning of the event bring your ticket (or ID) to 131 S. Main Street to check-in. There you will receive your official chili crawl map and voting ballot. Registration opens at 10:30 a.m. Chili is available beginning at 11 a.m.

Ballots will be split to allow voting on best restaurant chili and best home-cooked chili.

The last stop on the crawl is Hopper’s Silk Screening and All Star Trophy where your completed ballot can be redeemed by 2 p.m. for an “I Survived the Downtown Chili Crawl” T-shirt. It's the perfect attire to show off when you head back to the ice to listen to the bands on Saturday night! 

Will Ziggy's Pub retain the title of "Best Chili?" 

Or Knight Barry Title for "Home-Cooked"?
