Choose Between Two Options
- $42 for 5K entry, chili tasting, and beer tasting for one on Saturday, January 17 (up to $60 value)

The 5K: The noncompetitive Beerfooter Beach Run starts at Beerfoot Brewery with a 7:30 a.m. check-in. Afterward, runners—ideally in wacky costumes—can kick back with cold drinks and treats before heading to Chili Quest & Beer Fest.
The chili: Chili-cook-off competitors dish out samples of their best stuff from noon to 3 p.m. in the Historical Strand District while live music plays.
The beer: Breweries from across the country converge downtown to offer tastes of more than 120 beers from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Chili Quest & Beer Fest
When the aromas of hops and cayenne fill the air of the Historic Strand District, Galveston residents know the Chili Quest & Beer Fest has returned. Chili-cook-off teams unleash five-alarm potions for fans to sample before one is crowned champion. To cool the tongue, there are samples of more than 100 craft and imported beers, including exclusive event-only samplings from Galveston's Beerfoot Brewery. Once your belly space has been fully reserved, there are still plenty of other things to do—live musical performances, for instance, or maybe a washer pitching tournament.
