Findlay Market Chili Fest

Findlay Market is hosting its annual Chili Festival on Sunday, Jan. 15 from noon to 4 p.m. And based on the weather report, that might just be the perfect weekend activity.

Chili Fest is returning to Findlay Market and serving up more chili options than you’d think possible. Dubbed the perfect spot to pregame before the big Bengals playoff game, Chili Fest is offering chili and warm drinks from 20 local vendors, plus live music.

Not sure Cincinnati chili is right for you? Get out! Leave! But, before you go, you can try some more “traditional” chilis. Eckerlin Meats is serving up Texas Beer Bacon Chili. Or, you could try Moroccan chickpea chili from Dean’s Mediterranean Imports.

It’s not all chili, though. Em’s Breads will have jalapeno cheese bread and Flavors of the Isle will serve up BBQ mac-and-cheese.

If your stomach is grumbling with desire, fear not: Tickets are still available. You can purchase five sample tickets for $10 or 12 sample tickets for $20. It’s suggested you pre-order your tickets online, though a limited number will be available for purchase at Market Center on Sunday.

Chili Fest runs from noon-4 p.m. at Findlay Market, 1801 Race St., Over-the-Rhine. More information.
