BECKLEY, WV (WNVS) — The 30th Annual Beckley Chili Night was held this past weekend on Saturday, October 2nd from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. along Main & Neville Street. The night dedicated to chili saw entries from 15 cooks ranging between restaurants, businesses, and organizations.

While the event was scaled back due to Covid-19, 1,000 tickets were up for sale to allow folks a taste of the best chili in Southern West Virginia. Along with people’s choice awards, where attendees could vote for their favorite chili, several local celebrity judges held the honor to judge this year’s contest. Our very own Stormtracker 59 Meteorologist Bradley Wells was among the celebrity judges.
