Ramona Rodeo Chili Cookoff

Chili Cook-off

The Annual Chili Cook Off event is hosted by Cornerstone, a 501(c) non-profit organization in Ramona that provides therapeutic riding for children and adults with special needs and for wounded service members through its Operation Saddle Up program.

The event traditionally happens in November and features pumpkin painting contest for children, a Cornhole tournament, craft vendors, face painting and a kids corral to name just a few featured activities.

Contestants are asked to make five gallons of chili, and samples are available until they run out. Anyone interested in competing in the chili cook-off should contact Cornerstone’s Executive Director, Judy Beckett at 760-788-2872.

The organization relies on fundraisers, grants, and private and in-kind donations to fund its programs. Volunteers help by teaching riding lessons and assisting with office work and maintenance.

Interested in being a vendor at the cook off, donating a silent auction item, becoming a sponsor or volunteering? Call Judy Beckett at 760-788-2872 or email her at judyb@cornerstonetrc.org.
