Thank you to all who participated:-)

This local challenge is a Steamboat Springs tradition. Restaurants and citizens alike have been battling for the distinction of having the best chili in town for decades!  Our panel of expert judges will conduct blind tastings to determine the best of each category, but the real competition is for our People’s Choice Award. Attendees can purchase a tasting kit for $10 and cast their vote for their favorite.

If tasting the best chili in town is not enough for you, dance to music by local musicians Rural Wreckage and the Steve Boynton Trio  or join in our jam session. Play some yard games, enjoy an adult beverage or try your hand at roping. You can also cheer on our local boy Scout troop as they encourage their calf to poop in just the right spot at the annual Muffin Plop. All proceeds from the Plop benefit the Boy Scouts.

The price for a testing kit and the ability to vote for your favorite is $10. All proceeds from this event go to help fund our holiday programs like The Downtown Halloween Stroll, Light Up The Night, Santa’s House and the Twinkle lights on Lincoln. This is a great opportunity to eat some great chili and support some awesome local events.

Help Re-Imagine Yampa Street

We all do it right? We all say, “why don’t they do ….XX??”

This is your opportunity to share your great ideas, and actually have someone listen! Over the course of the summer months (June – September) Main Street Steamboat has created a community engagement process to talk about Yampa Street. This is your chance to tell us how YOU think it would be best to use Yampa Street. We want all your feedback. 

What festivals would you like to see or no festivals at all? How do we improve parking? Is there a place you would like to see a new bench or do we need a trash receptacle somewhere we haven’t thought of.  Should there be another pedestrian bridge to Howelsen? What is your favorite part of Yampa Street?

Look for our whiteboards on Yampa so that you can comment. Take a mini survey or fill out our survey online. We really want to hear from you! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YampaRE 

If you would like to know more about the process check out the Online Brochure.
