The City of Kissimmee is excited to host the 23rd Sunshine Regional Chili Cook-Off & Craft Beer Festival on Saturday, February 23 from 12 PM - 5 PM. The Chili Cook-Off is a sanctioned competition by the International Chili Society, offering chili cooks the opportunity to win cash prizes as well an opportunity to compete at a national competition. Attendees will sample dozens of competition-quality chili and help decide who wins the People's Choice Award and $500 by voting for their favorite.  Feeling the heat? Cool down with a craft beer sample! Adults only (21 years and up) are permitted to purchase. IDs will be checked onsite. Bring the family and be sure to enjoy the live entertainment, local vendors, and KUA Kids' zone!   FAQs   Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Everyone is welcome. Craft beer sampling and alcohol purchases are exclusive to adults, 21 years and older.   What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? The City of Kissimmee offers many free parking options within walking distance to this event, including the Intermodal/Sunrail Garage, City Center Garage, Toho Square Garage, Osceola County Courthouse parking lots, and Kissimmee City Hall parking lot.    What can I bring into the event? Your appetite and a friend! Please refrain from bringing outside alcohol, tents, unlawful weapons, cooking grills, and pets without a leash.   Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable? Unfortunately, no. The names on the chili and craft beer tickets will need to match the identification of the person at ticket/wristband pick up.
