City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of Ellen Lander Nischt, Press Secretary
Published: 01-12-2017

Akron, Ohio, January 12, 2017 – The 11th Annual Firefighters’ Chili Challenge, sponsored by the City of Akron, will take place at Lock 3 on Friday, January 20th from 11AM – 1PM (or earlier if the chili runs out)!


Each year, Akron firefighters issue the challenge to see who can create the best chili, which is served to Downtown employees and visitors. Some chili variations are traditional, while other teams set themselves apart with distinct flavors and ingredients. Tickets for six samples of chili and a beverage are $10. Individual chili samples are available for $1.50. Beverages are also available for $2. All proceeds benefit Akron Children’s Hospital Burn Institute.

“This is a great annual tradition that we are proud to continue,” Mayor Horrigan said. “I encourage the entire City to come to Lock 3, enjoy some delicious home-cooked food, support Akron Children’s Hospital, and join in the friendly competition. May the best chili win!”

The 2017 competitors include the Akron Fire Department, the Akron Police Department, the City of Akron Human Resources Department, ARCADIS, Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital and Hattie Larlham. Teams will be competing for the Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice Awards in addition to the Joe Smith Spirit Award. The Joe Smith Spirit Award was created in honor of Detective Joe Smith, an active supporter and participant in previous chili challenges, who passed away in 2014.
