Kick off chili season at the annual Belleville Chili Cook-Off. The city’s largest festival celebrates its 32nd year with delicious versions of this cold-weather comfort food prepared by individuals, area businesses and local organizations. Attendees also can work up an appetite by participating in the Chili Chase 5K Run/Walk & Kids Pepper Dash.

Guests spend two days sampling delicious chili and enjoying great entertainment. The festival serves as the biggest fundraiser of the year for local nonprofits. More than half the vendors dish out samples to raise money either as nonprofits themselves or as businesses donating 100 percent of their proceeds to charity.
