Arlington Business Partnership’s Annual Chili Cook-Off & Car/Cycle Show is Coming Memorial Day Weekend in Riverside’s Arlington Business District


Arlington Business Partnership’s Annual Chili Cook-Off & Car/Cycle Show returns for its 17th year on Saturday, May 25, and will offer Inland Empire residents a free, family friendly event with tons of activities for children and adults.


The annual event spans Magnolia Avenue between Van Buren Boulevard and Jackson Street, and will include a stage full of live music and an adjacent beer garden, a street full of classic cars and motorcycles, street vendors, a Kid’s Zone with crafts and activities, BBQ and, of course, chili.

“In 2003, the founding members of the Arlington Business Partnership started the chili cook-off with about 1,500 people in attendance and last year there was estimated to be 30,000 on the street,” said Arlington Business Partnership Executive Director, Andrew Guerra.



The cook-off will consist of two competitions: Citrus Inspired BBQ and Chili. The competition will include the local community and commercial cooks. Each competitor will be cooking in their booth and follow strict health and safety guidelines.

About Arlington Business Partnership

On October 1, 2002, the Riverside City Council authorized the formation of the Arlington Business Improvement District (BID) and designated the Arlington Business Partnership (ABP), a 501c (6) nonprofit organization, with the mission to represent and promote Arlington businesses, to stimulate the local economy, and initiate improvement projects, thus creating a sense of pride for all who live, work, and do business in Arlington. ABP serves as an advisory board to the City of Riverside on the Arlington BID and works in collaboration with the City in managing and maintaining the Arlington BID.
