Salsa Contest

Our annual salsa contest and salsa sampling has returned bigger and better than ever! This year we have two contests divisions "Amateur" and "Ultimate". Ultimate contest chefs will prepare their salsa onsite and compete to win up to $2500 in cash prizes and bragging rights! Sampling will start right at the beginning of the event and winners will be announced on the main stage towards the end of the evening.

Amateur salsa contestants are not required to provide public samples and simply have to prepare 24 oz. of salsa for our private panel of expert judges and win up to $250 and bragging rights.
