Chili Cookoff

SAVE THE DATE for OC3 2020!

It’s never too early to think about chili. That’s why we’re excited to announce that the 3rd Annual Orchard City Chili Cookoff will go down at St. Lucy’s Parish on Saturday, June 13, 2020.

The OC3 is a cornerstone community event to raise funds for our club’s youth programs and St. Lucy’s work with local families. We look forward to working with you to make next year’s cookoff a huge success.

In the meantime, save the date and get your taste buds ready!

The Orchard City Chili Cookoff (OC3 for short) is an annual community gathering centered around food, family, and fun(draising). It is officially sanctioned as a regional event by the International Chili Society (ICS) and features both professional and amateur cooking competitions, a beer garden for adults, and live music for all ages.

Parking and admission are free. Chili tastings and beverages are available for purchase, along with other food offerings.

100% of proceeds from the event benefit the Campbell San Jose West Rotary Foundation, the nonprofit 501(c)(3) wing of Campbell Rotary, supporting leadership development and scholarships for local youth, backpack drives for at-risk students, and dozens of charitable programs in Campbell, Willow Glen, and West San José.
