The Malibu Chili Cook-Off, a much-loved Malibu Labor Day Weekend community tradition, returns for another year. If your family really loves chili (or you just like a night off from making dinner!), this fest is for you.

As in previous years, attendees can expect live music, carnival rides, and great variety of food, drinks, and unique artisan vendors. And, of course, lots and lots of chili!

Chili is available on-site all weekend long, with both meat and vegan varieties available. Chili pricing varies based upon vendor. Pricing generally ranges from $2 for a tasting to $14 for a bowl. 

Local pros do their thing at the Skateboard Mini-Ramp; guests can show-off their tricks, and learn from coaches! The 4th annual Johnny Strange Legacy Skate Competition is held on Sunday.

Event hours:  

Friday 4pm - 10pm
Saturday and Sunday 1pm - 10pm
Monday 1pm - 8pm

All proceeds from the Chili Cook-Off benefit The Boys & Girls Club of Malibu.

Parking is $20 - $60 via cash only. Ride share is HIGHLY suggested due to limited parking. Ride Share Drop off location: Malibu Library, 23525 Civic Center Way, Malibu, CA 90265
