HAA presents the Ghosts of Chili’s Past  

For 25 years, the annual HAF Chili Fest has been the much anticipated event of the year. This year is no exception! Games, goodies, tricks, treats, and most importantly—chili! 

Join us as we tip our hats and conjure up the ghostly spirits from the Big Chili’s past. We’re brewing up extra special surprises and activities to celebrate the HAF Chili Fest Silver Anniversary! Pull out your old swag from Chili’s past and dress your kids up for an unforgettable day!

Calling all cooks!  

Take the grand prize (and a lot of bragging rights) to be crowned the “best of the best” chili. Chili will be judged on characteristics other than heat – namely aroma, consistency, color, flavor and aftertaste. The top three selected will be awarded! Feel free to make other foods, but only the chili will be judged.

Your chili making skills isn’t the only thing being awarded! Awards will also go to the top three for the best single and double booths. This year is the time to pull out all the stops for our 25th anniversary. Booths will be judged based on theme, costumes, design, action and audience appeal.

Exhibitor Fee Single Booth - $350 (includes 5 wristbands)
Double Booth - $700 (includes 10 wristbands)

Please remember, this is a family event! We encourage all exhibitors to have kid-friendly activities & refreshments (pre-packaged only please) at their booths as you're sure to be visited by many trick-or-treaters!
