Chili & Gumbo Cook-off
Our most anticipated event of the year

Whether you prefer to eat or compete, there is nothing quite like ABC of Georgia's Chili & Gumbo Cook-off. This annual competition showcases ABC members' culinary prowess and creativity. Nearly forty companies develop, design, and build elaborate booths based on their chosen theme. Over the years we have seen pirate ships, discotheques, saloons, and film sets from some of our favorite movies and TV shows! One thing is for certain--our members show up to win.

Not interested in cooking? All are welcome to eat! Non-competing members are invited to make the rounds and cast their votes for Best Theme. This is our largest event of the year, with 800+ people!

Registration for the Chili & Gumbo Cook-off opens in September.
