2022 Chili Cookoff

To Benefit CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties and Overland Park Masonic Lodge Charities


Are you a chili connoisseur? A bean buff? A cornbread critic? Have we got an event for you! Overland Park Lodge will be hosting a chili Cookoff at Lenexa VFW to support CASA of Johnson and Wyandotte Counties and Overland Park Lodge.

We're looking for folks interested in going toe to toe with other chili chefs for a $300 prize! If competition isn't your thing we'll have a house chili with toppings, cornbread, and desserts available. While you're there feel free to sample the competitors' chilis and vote for you favorite. As a token of our gratitude to the men and women who keep our community safe, all first responders with a valid ID eat free. 

For any questions or to register for the competion please email

Competition Participant Requirements:

A competition participant for the cookoff must bring a covered crock pot containing their chili capable of holding it at a suitable serving temperature for the duration of the cookoff. In order to register to be a competition participant, please contact and complete the provided form with $20 entry fee before February 26th. There will be no limit on the amount of chili the participant must provide, but for the best chance to win they should be able to provide as many samples as possible.
