US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association

Our favorite time of year is fast approaching! Time for the 33rd Annual Texas Society of the Virgin Islands Chili Cook-Off on Aug. 20.

The event will feature new music, new t-shirt designs, a new beach layout, a great chili raffle, a new ticket purchasing process and, because you requested it, we are bringing back the very popular Chili Cook’s BBQ on Aug. 19 for you and one guest.

We will once again feature a People’s Choice Award as well as a trophy for best Hotel Entry, and a separate traveling trophy for each district (Red Hook, Havensight, Frenchtown and St. John).

We are implementing a registration deadline of Aug. 17 this year, so don’t wait until the last minute to register your chili team! No entries will be taken at the cook’s BBQ. Sign up now and get your space on Brewer’s Beach reserved!

In the next few weeks we will be launching our complete chili cook off website at, so keep in touch with our Facebook Page, Texas Society of the Virgin Islands, for event details. Call Erik Ackerson at 340-473-8706 for further details or with questions. Click here to download the entry form.
