Annual chili festival

Posted: Updated:

Hot and spicy chili. It puts the sizzle in southwest and helps preserve Sonoran beauty at the same time.

For the past nine years, the Rincon Institute-- a non profit organization working to conserve the Sonoran Desert-- has hosted the roasted chili festival.

All of the vendor fees and raffle money go toward the institute's projects, like the Rincon Valley Farmer's Market.
