This annual fundraiser has become a celebratory tradition among the Chicago arts community. The first Hashbrown was held in 2011 to fund a major studio expansion. Now, eight years later, the cook-off has become a tradition that brings together our community to celebrate the visual arts, friends, and food.Between tastes of chili, guests can enjoy plenty of printmaking carnival games, classic county fair snacks, all-ages face painting, and so much more. Music will be provided by Ferric Chloride, a one-night DJ duo mixing an eclectic collection heavy metal country covers, and vice versa. 

For the first time, Spudnik Press Cooperative is offering a simplified admission, with all guests enjoying open bar and unlimited chili. Plus, discounted tickets are available to artists and kids. Heavy Metal County Fair: 9th Annual Hashbrown Chili Cook-Off is a rare family-friendly open bar event!
