Buckeye Regional & Ohio State Chili Championships
CaJohns Fiery Foods hands out trophies and $1,000 grand prizes to the top masters of flavor while hosting the Buckeye Regional & Ohio State Chili Championships. Regional competitions battle over taste buds’ allegiance on Saturday, September 1, and spice masters fight for the title of statewide champion on Sunday, September 2. Prizes go to those with the best red chili, chili verde, and salsa. Amateurs and Westerville natives also receive the chance to compete against one another in their own divisions, as do men and women in the police force, National Guard, and fire department, where chili is both eaten and commonly used as a backup fire retardant.
