28th Annual Hot Chili & Cool Cars

28th Annual Hot Chili & Cool Cars

We’re back for the 28th Annual Hot Chili & Cool Cars event and couldn’t be more excited! This year will be one of celebration as we bring people back together and carry on traditions that have spanned decades.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 18, from 10 am to 3 pm at Quarry Park and Rocklin Road in downtown Rocklin. It will once again feature a classic car show, chili cook-off, business booths, kids booths, food trucks, youth performance group, and more!

Due to the overwhelming amount of positive feedback from the community after our 2020 classic car cruise, we have decided to bring it back as an event feature, moving forward. To kick off the event weekend, classic beauties will cruise the streets of Rocklin on Friday, September 17, starting at 6 pm. The exact route will be posted at a later date.

Did you become a great cook in 2020? Why not put those skills to the test? We are currently recruiting chili teams to compete in our chili cook-off. We have teams from all different backgrounds: high school culinary clubs, home-based cooks, businesses looking to connect with potential clients, workplaces looking to provide a team-building activity, political campaigns, non-profit organizations, and more!

Applications are now being accepted for: Car Cruise, Car Show, Business Booth, Chili Teams, Kids Booths, Food Booths, and Performance Square. Space is limited and registration is first come, first served. Registration forms are available for download at

Online registration for all categories is also available on the website.

Businesses looking for increased exposure can secure event sponsorships ranging from $500-$10,000. We offer various packages to fit the needs of your business. Downloadable forms are available on our website.
