About

Since 1967, ICS has been bringing people together over America’s greatest culinary creation - CHILI! We sanction nationwide chili cook-offs all year long, which raise money for charities and produce an annual World Champion! In 2020, the World Food Championships officially acquired ICS to further its brand in the Food Sport world!
In 2023 we are again hosting our annual event at Pavilion Park in Myrtle Beach, SC! Join us September 29 - October 1, 2023

Join us for a great time on the beach with championship chili, entertainment, and fun for the whole family!
