Chili Crawl in Aggieville

The 20th Annual Chili Crawl kicks off at 3:30 pm and is held at Johnny Kaw's Yard Bar, in the heart of Aggieville. This event in Manhattan, KS is full of big fun and big flavors!

Some serious bragging rights are up for grabs this weekend in Aggieville! The 20th Annual Chili Crawl kicks off at 3:30 pm and is held at Johnny Kaw's Yard Bar, in the heart of Aggieville. This year, twelve chilis are competing for the title of "THE BEST CHILI" the competition is stiff!

Participants are asked to go to every restaurant and taste the chili so that they can vote on their favorite. At the end of the day, the votes are tallied and the winner is announced. Participants are asked to buy tickets in advance, just FYI, this normally does sell out so getting your tickets in advance ensures you get to enjoy all the chili being serviced. Tickets are purchased from the local Optimist Club in Manhattan, KS! You can find the link to purchase tickets here!

Participants will enjoy a variety of chilis from traditional, to Mole versions, Chicken Chili, Pozole', and more! Plus, the toppings! The restaurants seriously pull out ALL the stops when they are serving their chili and presentation totally counts! My best advice is to come hungry and pace yourself! You will be totally stuffed but it will be totally worth it! I promise!

As I am sure you have associated, this event has a lot of healthy competition and serious bragging rights, but it is also held to benefit the Optimist Club and its many efforts throughout the community of Manhattan, KS. This event is one of three fundraising events that are held annually, the other two are the Christmas Trees at Optimist Park and the Spaghetti Dinner.
