Chili Cookoff in Gatlinburg

Unlike spring and summer in Gatlinburg TN, the fall and winter months offer a barrage of seasonal events and shows. From light shows to Tunes and Tales, Gatlinburg is full of excitement. This November and December are no different than years past. One event that stands out amongst others is the Winter Magic Kickoff and Chili Cookoff.

Unlike other events, the chili cook-off is one event you can really participate in. At the 20th annual Chili Cookoff, imagine tasting some of the South's finest chili recipes. The home-style chili will range from mild to wild. The city of Gatlinburg will host the event on the downtown Parkway on November 4th from 4-9 PM. A small admission is required.

Also, running in conjunction with the Chili Cookoff is the Winter Magic Kickoff. Winter Magic will run from 5-8PM on November 4. The city of Gatlinburg will turn on over 3 million twinkling lights. There will be live entertainment by Marvelettes. A beautiful display of fireworks will be set off at dusk. This event is sponsored by Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg.

If you are around Gatlinburg during the first week in November make your way down to the Parkway and enjoy some seasonal fun. For more information, please visit the Gatlinburg Chamber website.
