This is a regional event, one you might consider if venturing outside Adams County during your visit.

It’s the annual Hanover Chili Cook Off, a community charitable fundraising event managed by The Exchange Club of Hanover. This event is a staple for family entertainment, chili tasting and fundraising for local nonprofit organizations, all built around the International Chili Society’s PA State Chili Cooking Championship.

The event includes many varieties of chili, along with supporting vendors, not to mention good food trucks and beverage concessions too! There’s also music by three local bands, a magician, a juggler and a face painter. And of course, the ever-popular Jalapeno Pepper Eating Contest.

Tickets are $12.00 at the gate. Advance tickets are $10.00 available online with a limited number of VIP packages for online purchase only at Checkout Page (

Children 12 and under and active military with ID are FREE.
