13th Annual Chili Cook-Off and Car Show

Northeast Florida got ‘fired up’ over the weekend at Moosehaven’s ‘hottest’ event of the season! Many chili lovers, flavor fanatics, and car enthusiasts attended the 13th annual Chili Cook-Off & Car Show. It was a sizzling celebration of hot cars and hotter chili!

Talented cook teams battled it out for ‘Chili Champion’ titles while visitors enjoyed river views, craft vendors, a kids zone, and live music by Bold City Classics. NASCAR driver Ross Chastain brought the Moose Fraternity No. 1 Show Car and took pictures with fans, and more than 200 classic cars lined the Moosehaven grounds.

Thank you to our sponsors for another fantastic event, and a big congratulations to all of our Chili Cook-Off participants and winners!
