If you're American, you love two things: 1) Shit-kickin' country music and 2) delicious, steaming bowls of chili! Now these two deeply American things come together in one awesome local event—the Portland Mercury's Chili Jamboree!
We're bringing together spicy, savory, slow-cooked chili from Portland's best celebrity chefs, and adding a full deck of boot-scootin' country bands—and we mean the GOOD kind of country—for a party your mouth and ears won't ever forget. Taste 'em all, then vote for the chili champ, who'll be awarded the first-ever, highly coveted Chili Belt. There's also beer and cocktails, music from Lucero, Sturgill Simpson, and more, plus delicious pie from Mary Casaneve Sheridan of the Honey Pot! Country music, chili, and pie? This is WHY you live in America.
And we're talking about some of Portland's top chefs, including those from Smallwares, Podnah's Pit, Smokehouse 21, Ned Ludd, Castagna, and more! This is gonna be a super fun all-day event, and even if you can't stay for it all, you can buy tickets for whatever part of the day you're most interested in! BECAUSE WE LOVE YER BUTT.
As with practically every Mercury event, this is gonna sell out. So get your reduced tickets here and now, and come to the show with an empty tummy!
