With hundreds of events and showcases to choose from during SXSW, it’s hard to decide which one to go to. The Chili Dog Fest has it all. Hours of non-stop music, chili dogs, and drinks. But it gets even better. The event helps feed families in need.
The madness begins on Sunday, March 11, at noon across multiple stages at The Side Bar, Empire Control Room & Garage and Beerland Texas. With countless bands playing, there’s music for everyone, even the little ones. The Chili Dog Fest is a family-friendly event, but minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
A $10 donation at the Empire Garage gate gets you admission to all stages, an envelope containing a ticket good for a Frank Dog you can slather with your condiments of choice and three raffle tickets. Fill out the tickets and drop them in the raffle prize envelope of your choice. Winners will be drawn about a week after the big party. No SXSW badge or wrist bands are required.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Food Bank. For complete details on the band line-up and raffle prizes, check out the event’s page here.
