The International Chili Society (ICS) is seeking volunteers for its largest chili festival of the year– the World Championship Chili Cook-off (WCCC)– which will give Myrtle Beach a taste of professional competition chili. With the event set to take place September 17-19, 2021 at Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place, volunteering at this annual event is the perfect opportunity to get involved in the Grand Strand community.
The only requirement for all WCCC volunteers is a ‘can do’ attitude. Volunteer opportunities range from serving samples, production assistance, greeting and interacting with guests, giving an extra hand to staff, operating the judging tent and so much more.
What are the perks for volunteering? All volunteers will receive a free WCCC t-shirt, free shift meals, and behind the scenes access.
“WCCC has experienced over 50 years of success and much of that is due to our hardworking and committed volunteers,” said Mike McCloud, President and CEO of ICS. “Every competition is getting bigger and better, but it is always the volunteer chili fans that are making our event go smoothly.”
Anyone interested in getting in the mix and volunteering can register here. Assignments will vary based on age and ability. Must be 16 to volunteer, anyone underage must sign parental consent.
