The General Assembly Wild Game Chili Cook-Off is an annual non-partisan, charitable event held in Richmond while the state legislature is in session. This FREE event for anyone who roams the grounds of Capitol Square – legislators, staff, lobbyists, and friends – and features a variety of wild game, tame meat, and vegetarian chili recipes from familiar faces around Virginia. Recipes from recent years have included wild boar, bison, venison, kangaroo, bear, moose, dove, goose, pheasant, caribou and elk. Judges select First, Second, and Third place winners as well as recipients of the 'Spiciest' and 'Most Hospitable Chef' awards. The Chili Cook-Off has been featured in the Food Network Magazine, Style Weekly, Richmond Navigator and The Virginian-Pilot.
