2018 CASI Chili Cook-off News

Good news for those attending the CASI Chili Cook-off this year who happen to be tent campers or not and do not want the hassle of having to lug your own water or tent shower or for that matter having to drive into town for one. For the first time in its 52 year history, the new vendor in charge of port-o-potties and trash disposal will be providing shower shelters. The 4-day Event Shower pass will cost $40.00.

Lots of crazy entertainment that will bring a smile to your face :D

This is great news!  I remember in the 90's having to stand in line for hours waiting my turn at the only showers open to the public in Lajitas, Texas in what was a trailer park and store. This was also the location where Clay Henry (the unofficial goat mayor of Lajitas) was housed. These showers had four stalls but only three worked.  We have come a long way since then, thank goodness for the invention of tent showers in the early 2000's.

My wonderful tent shower

Here is the 2018 General Schedule

Another piece of good news is that the price of entry remains the same at $40.00 spectator's gate entry fee for the entire week.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Chili Cook-off Dreams.


  1. I hope you have a wonderful time at this event, and I'm looking forward to many pictures. I love the guys in the grass skirts, by the way.

  2. Wow, only 2 1/2 weeks til lift-off!
    Fingers crossed that all the stars align for you, Ms B, & you get to go again this year & hang out with your besties!

  3. When you make it to this one, how many will that make?

    1. If I am lucky enough to attend it would be my 22nd as I have missed two cook-offs.

  4. Oh I sure hope you get to go, didn't know you planned this trip.

    1. The Chili Cook-off is my equivalent of most people's birthday, Christmas and New Year's combined.

      I always plan to attend but whether or not I get to go this year is still up in the air.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you for your readership.
