The International Chili Society (ICS) is the largest sanctioning body of chili cook-offs in the country. Every year hundreds of chili cooks compete nationwide to qualify for ICS’s season finale – the World Championship Chili Cook-off (WCCC)! In its 55th year in existence and 2nd year in Myrtle Beach, this is not just any old cook-off. This cook-off determines who can claim the title of World Champion and their portion of a $75,000 prize purse! The best part? You get to be a part of the action! The WCCC features champion chili tastings, beer gardens, food trucks, live music, craft and retail vendors, a kid zone, and MORE!
