The Swallows Inn Foundation and the San Juan Capistrano Equestrian Coalition have
joined forces to bring the International Chili Society Regional Finals Chili Cook Off back
to San Juan Capistrano. This is serious business, and chili enthusiasts from all over
California will be bringing their best to compete at this fun event. The winners will be
eligible to move on to the next level of competition – which ensures that some great
Chili will be on the tasting tables!
The fun begins when gates open at noon behind the Old Barn Antiques and Swallows
Inn. There will be live music all day, dancing, vendor booths, and of course-lots of
delicious Chili to taste. Based on previous Chili Cook Off’s, we anticipate more than
3000 in attendance – bringing lots of exposure to our City from nearby communities and
many first-time visitors.
The proceeds from the event will be used to benefit the many local charities assisted by
the Swallows Inn Foundation, as well as the San Juan Capistrano Equestrian Coalition’s
ongoing work to support and protect the town’s unique equestrian heritage. The hard-
working volunteers from both organizations are committed to continuing their charitable
efforts, and this event is going to help to achieve those goals.
We are asking for your support to help make this Chili Cook Off an enormous success –
we have 4 levels of sponsorship available (please see the enclosed brochure – each
level offers great benefits). As a Sponsor, you can count on significant exposure
leading up to the event, on the day of the event, and ongoing acknowledgement of your
contribution during the year.
