Here's what else you can expect:
The International Chili Society will conduct the first-ever Tim & Willy Cave Creek Chili Cook-Off both nights (green chili on Wednesday, red chili on Thursday), offering $1750 in prize money each night. There will also be a music competition both nights featuring more than 50 entries competing for cash and prizes.
Not amused enough yet? How about a wine and craft beer garden, tequila tastings and an art exhibit and sale put on by the Sonoran Arts League? On Wednesday night, The Herndon Brothers + Tim and Willy's All Earl Band will play from 6 to 10 p.m. At the festival, you can also pick up a $10 copy of the just released Taste of Cave Creek Cookbook, which features recipes (many Southwestern-inspired) from the restaurants participating in the event.
