Information for Team Captains

There will be two important dates coming up; February 26th and March 1st. Attending one of these two dates is mandatory for all Team Captains. If you are a corporate team, which you will have been notified about, you will attend the March 1st meeting. All other Team Captains who have not been notified about being a corporate team will attend the meeting on February 26th. Both meeting dates take place at 5:30PM and will be held at The Tap (815 Harvey Rd, College Station). During the meeting we will be going over the rules and regulations for Chilifest 2019, along with the opportunity for Team Captains to purchase additional tickets with reduced ticket fees. Plan on having all of your money collected by this date. We will use the number of tickets that your team has purchased by this date to determine your teams spot size. Spot selection will be held on March 23rd. A Chilifest representative will reach out to each Team Captain with more information regarding their spot selection after March 1st. Each Team Captain should have received a password, which can be used online to add tickets to their team.

 

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. We can’t wait to continue working with y’all, and hope to make this the best Chilifest yet.

Over the years, Chilifest Inc. has assembled an untarnished resume of success – having entertained thousands of patrons and attracted some of country music’s finest performers to our area. Undoubtedly, Chilifest remains in a class of its own: dedicated to providing a spectacular event, with all proceeds benefiting the community to aid in many worthy causes. As of today, Chilifest has contributed over THREE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS to the Brazos Valley and surrounding areas.

Rolling Stone said it best about Cody Jinks. “Rule Changing Country Music”.

Gracing the stage Friday night is the Battle of the Bands winner Joh Hord, Kolby Cooper, Kody West, Shane Smith & The Saints, and co-headliners Koe Wetzel and Pat Green! One of the most influential modern stars in Texas’ long country-music tradition, Pat Green has left a mark on the lives of countless fans and generations of artists, helping to solidify a cultural movement bringing artists from the Lone-star state to the national stage along the way. Ending the year on Pandora’s ‘Country Artists to Watch’ and Spotify’s ‘Most Streamed’ lists, Koe Wetzel brings his brand of East Texas rock ‘n’ roll to sold out crowds all across the country. Koe is in the studio now, working on his highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Noise Complaint.

Change in Chilifest 2016 Entertainment Line-Up for Saturday, April 16th 1024 341 Blake

Change in Chilifest 2016 Entertainment Line-Up for Saturday, April 16th

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE on April 15, 2016:

Change in Chilifest 2016 Entertainment Line-Up for Saturday, April 16th

Chilifest 2016 Saturday’s Headliner ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill fell right before the band’s show Thursday night performance in Lubbock, Texas and dislocated his shoulder … forcing them to cancel the concert.

The manager says an ambulance on site took the 66-year-old rocker to the hospital for treatment. ZZ Top momentarily considered going on with the bassist from their opening act, Tim Montana and The Shrednecks — but decided fans would be disappointed if they went on with half-beard power.
Chilifest Inc. wishes Dusty Hill a speedy recovery and completely understands their reason for canceling the 25th Anniversary of Chilifest 2016. The show must go on and we always have a Plan B to back up situations like this. Although Plan B has never been implemented, an event of this caliber always needs a back up plan. So gracing the stage on Saturday in ZZ Top’s place will be announced later this afternoon and it will end the outstanding entertainment line-up of 10 previous performers that took place Friday and into this Saturday.

We aim to please so expect greatness because at the end of this Texas tradition we call Chilifest 2016, the proceeds go to many great causes to better the life of the Brazos Valley and surrounding areas.
