The Chili Queens Chili Cook-off is a modern and eccentric interpretation of a historical event where competitors came from all over to test their chili against others recipes. While the chili competition has not changed, the word, “Queen” has been expanded to not just the belle of the ball, but the tackiest of the tacky! The event is complete with a tasting of chili (the official dish of Texas), the tackiest Queen drag competition and the hottest dance music on the main dance floor of the historic Bonham Exchange. All proceeds benefit the San Antonio AIDS Foundation Kitchen.  


The Happy Foundation was created by the late, Arthur “Hap” Veltman. Hap was a downtown San Antonio developer, entrepreneur and historic conservationist. The Happy Foundation is dedicated to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and LGBT history and encouraging contemporary art. 


Admission is free. Donations are accepted. Must be 18 years or older.
