It’s Time for the 9th Annual Magnolia State Bank Chili Cook Off!

On Saturday, February 8, 2020, Downtown Laurel will once again welcome hungry customers and competition teams with their top secret chili recipes. The annual Magnolia State Bank Chili Cook Off is one of Laurel Main Street’s most popular events each year. 

Early in the morning, teams will begin setting up and decorating their booths along Central Avenue.  All of the teams will prepare their recipes from scratch as attendees look on. The event officially begins at NOON. 

For just $10, you can enjoy an “all-you-can-eat” bowl.  For $25, enjoy a “bottomless” Carl Buchanan keepsake pottery bowl.  This year, skip the line and purchase your tickets in advance! Visit www.eventbrite.com to get your tickets before the big day. 

Our expert panel of judges will taste each entry and decide who wins the $1,000 prize in each category. We’ll reveal our taste masters soon!

Events like the Chili Cook Off just wouldn’t be possible without the support and backing of local businesses. These sponsorships help pay for the prizes, supplies and more! Their donations also help fund the Laurel Main Street Facade & Amenities grant and are directly responsible for the improvements you see in Downtown Laurel.
