Charlie and the Hashbrown Factory: 10th Annual Spudnik Press Chili Cook-Off

All-You-Can-Eat Chili | Hashbrowns | Open Bar | Games | Music

Take an unforgettable, uniquely magical journey through the deliciously delightful, whimsically wonderful world of Spudnik Press Cooperative at our 10thAnnual Chili Cook-Off. The world of pure imagination is the limit for our 16 chefs competing for the admiration of our guests and the coveted prizes of “Best Chili”!

Because nothing goes better with chili than chili, admission comes with unlimited tastes of chili. Plus, for the first time in the event’s history, we’ll proudly be serving an everlasting supply of our Famously Mysterious & Eponymous Hash Browns!

Between tastes of chili, enjoy Wonka-themed games and activities, drinks for both kids and adults, candy-inspired tunes, and more.

“After all, a little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest of them.”
