Ultimate Tailgate

Ultimate Tailgate Rib & Chili Cookoff

2024 Date TBD (based on Chicago Bears schedule)

It’s one of the best Sunday Fundays all year in Dixon! 

Locals and traveling teams show off their chili and ribs, while hungry patrons pack the Beanblossom parking lot!

The big game is shown on a big screen, and there’s also a bags tournament.

The bars offer specials and get involved in the competitions, too! It always makes for a great fall afternoon downtown!
