2022 Crosslake Days - Chili Cookoff

Saturday, September 24, 2022 (12:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (CDT)


We're celebrating 35 years that Crosslake Businesses have been mixing up their special blends and this year's competition is going to be HOT, with 30 businesses vying for the Golden Ladles and bragging rights!  The judges are self proclaimed culinary enthusiasts, and while they determine who wins the Crosslake Days Chili Cook-off title, the Peoples Choice award, determined by hundreds of samplers, is often a tougher crowd to please! Be sure to download the Crosslake App to your mobile device and vote for your favorite!

Thank you to each of the 31 businesses who participated in the Chili Cook-off!  In a cumulative scoring system, our Dahlheimer Beverage representatives, tallied the highest scores and awarded their Judges Choice to:

1st Place - Whitefish at the Lakes Senior Living

2nd Place - Outlet Recreation.com/Marine 

3rd Place - Crosswoods Development

In the Peoples Choice category, with almost 500 votes cast, the awards go to:

1st Place - Whitefish at the Lakes Senior Living

2nd Place - Grand Champion Meats

3rd Place - RiverWood Bank
