Each year on the first Saturday of November CASI holds the ultimate celebration of Chili. This granddaddy of all chili cookoffs is held at Rancho CASI de los Chisos in Terlinqua, Texas. Rancho CASI is located on the North side of Highway 170, eleven miles west of Study Butte and 7 miles east of Lajitas. The four day celebration begins each year on Wednesday before the big weekend, and culminates on Saturday with the Terlingua International Chili Championship. It’s a Texas tradition of epic proportion – complete with an annual proclamation from the Governor declaring “Chili Appreciation Society International Day” in Texas! Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the celebration, the unique vendors, the ruggged terrain surrounding the ranch, and …of course…the Chili! The grounds officially open on the Wednesday before the first Saturday in November, and the gate admission, per person, for the entire event is $40.00. The gate admission for the first Saturday in November only is $20.00 per person. The first Saturday in November is the actual day of the TICC International Chili Championship cookoff. The nightly stage entertainment starts on Thursday night and continues through Saturday night.
