Event Description

The fiery fest features culinary powerhouses from around the area as attendees explore new flavors. Restaurants will offer a variety of dishes to warm your taste buds. In addition, the Fest will feature a variety of multicultural cuisines. This unique five-alarm dine-around is the perfect opportunity for flavor discovery and expanding even the pickiest eats pallet.

As a significant part of the festivities center around each restaurant, take on "Chili," you're the judge. These kitchen crusaders will go head to head for the championship belt, and a winner will take all cash prizes in a chili cook-off where you will declare the Best Overall. As Chili is often done in experimental batches, you, the attendee, will decide the cook-off.

As a part of the integral chili cook-off, a $5000 prize has been established. Each restaurant partner will select a 501C3 of their choice pitting the cash prize of $2500 (and a rad belt) to the chef and $2500 to the restaurant's charity partner. This spicy food fest brings heat to your pallet while warming your heart.

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore the festival's hot sauce and artist village, vendors, compete in pepper eating contests, and even watch professionals play with fire. Fest will feature signature cocktails, as well as some of the area's hottest breweries.

Supported by Bourre, the Good Time Tricycle team plans on setting South New York Ave ablaze with flavor and heat like only they know-how. You're invited to experience the creativity of the Atlantic City area's finest culinary experts and a collection of all things hot and honey.
