The 2nd annual City High Middle School Chili Cook-off is a family-friendly event that will be held at Tip Top Bar and Grill at 760 Butterworth St. SW in Grand Rapids. City teachers, staff, parents, students and Grand Rapids community members are welcome to enter and join us for an evening of amazing chili, friendly competition and great music from Delilah Dewylde.

Chili accompaniments and desserts will be provided by the PTSA. The Tip Top will also have a cash bar for adults. There is a $15 entry fee to compete. If you just want to eat, tickets are $10 for individuals and $25 per family.

If you can’t make it but still want to support the PTSA, we invite you to make a donation! Cookbooks of all the recipes are also available, preorder for $5.


  • Red Chili: The old standby, everyone has their perfect family recipe. Whip up Grandma’s famous pot and join the fun!
  • White Chili: Chicken chili, turkey chili or anything similar that doesn’t have a red sauce as a base. Get creative!
  • Vegetarian Chili: Like the name implies, this is chili without meat. Sacrilege to some, so very delicious to others. Bring your best for us to sample!

Entrance fees provide you with the opportunity to sample the wide variety of chili dishes and vote for your favorites. Proceeds will benefit the Principal’s fund, which Dr. Pascoe uses to do fun things with the kids.

Prizes for the best chili will be given to the winners in each of the three categories!
