Vallarta Yacht Club
October 18, 2013


It all started 13 years ago... the first ever Great Chili Cook-Off. Now it's bigger and better. Not just chili, but Taste of Nuevo too!

The Marina Nuevo Vallarta malecon will be the site of the first ever Taste of Nuevo Vallarta and 13th Annual Chili Cook-off, hosted by the Vallarta Yacht Club. It will be held on Saturday, December 7, from 4:00 until 8:00 pm.  

This exciting event will include the competitive sampling of outstanding chili as prepared by individuals or teams, as well as professional chefs from local restaurants.

Additionally, some of the finest restaurants in Nuevo Vallarta and the surrounding area will offer tasting samples from their menus.

Attendees may purchase sampling tickets for 10 pesos. Each ticket will allow a "sample" of chili or any of the other type of food offered. Attendees may also use tickets to purchase bottled water, soda, beer, wine and Margaritas. Music will be provided.

Net proceeds will go to charity, evenly split between Families at the Dump and the Navy League Toys for Tots program.

Parking will be available at Marina Nuevo Vallarta and a water taxi will be available from the Vallarta Yacht Club and Paradise Village.

If you want to be a Chili cooker participant, please let VYC Manager Rudy know by phone (322) 297-2222 or email or contact event manager Dee Cockerham (322) 297-5001 or by email.
