Note: Please carefully read through all changes so you are properly prepared for sign-ups and Chilifest 2024 The Basics: A minimum of 15 members are required for a team. Each team “spot” is a 20×20 plot on the Chilifest event grounds conveniently located within seconds of the stage. We have many larger teams that request multiple “spots”. This is acceptable as long as the 15 people per spot minimum is met and fully paid for by March 6, 2024. Spot selection will be held shortly after, and a Chilifest representative will contact you with more information. After spot selection, you may continue to add team members all the way up to the event but your spot will be set. The number of spots is not guaranteed and will vary depending on the total size of your team and the total number of patrons that attend the event.
Example: Captain of ‘Chilifest Team A’ has 90 members signed up by February 25th. The Captain will only be required to fill out ONE FORM FOR CHILIFEST 2024 and the team can request 1-6 spots.
Transportation: Public buses will now be provided for all team members returning to College Station between the hours of 8:30 PM and 1:30 AM on Friday, April 5th with the drop-off location being Post Oak Mall. Teams will not be allowed to run private transportation during this timeframe or on Saturday. This is to address transportation issues arising from Friday night team bussing in previous years. Teams will still be allowed to run private transportation from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Friday.
Team Registration & Discounted Pricing: Starting on January 31st, teams may register online and purchase tickets from Jan. 31st to March 6th at the discounted team price of $91 plus $3.00 in service fees for cash or check or an additional 3% service fee at all times for credit/debit cards. All tickets purchased after March 6th will be treated as General Admission and subject to standard 2-Day GA pricing and fees. ($110.00 + ticket fees) Team Spot Selection: Spot selection will be ENTIRELY BASED UPON TICKET SALES BY MARCH 6TH. The size of your team’s spot will be dependent on the number of people on your team at the end of Team add-on’s/Team Captain Meeting at Chimy’s, March 6th.
3 Days of Team Set-Up: This year, there will be three separate build days Tuesday-Thursday, to create the best Team experience possible. ***NO TEAM WILL HAVE MORE THAN TWO DAYS TO BUILD***
The top six selling fraternities & top five selling men’s orgs will begin load-in (no drills) TUESDAY, APRIL 2ND. The following day, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3RD, the remaining teams will begin their load in (no drills). THURSDAY, APRIL 4TH, ALL teams may begin drilling tiers & will be allowed the use of power tools from 8:00am-5:00pm. If teams wish to bring in materials for their spot with the use of a truck and/or trailer, teams MUST arrive prior to their designated load in time. Teams will be allotted 45 minutes to unload any of their team spot materials (please see “Team Spot and Build Regulations” document below for restricted items). It is highly recommended to finish unloading within the 45 minute time frame. There will be rare, time-lenient exceptions granted, while many teams are dropping off due to our focus to prevent chaos & ensure team safety within the perimeters of the Chilifest grounds. Hired security and Chilifest Chairman are obligated to escort violating teams off of the Chilifest grounds if necessary to sustain the integrity of the event. Please keep the number of vehicles used to a minimum, as large volumes of vehicles lengthen the efficiency that we can get teams in and out. After teams have unloaded their materials within their 45 minute window, they must remove their vehicles from the event grounds. Teams will be able to park their vehicles in the adjacent field, and return to the Chilifest grounds BY FOOT to set up their team spot. Team members will be able to set up their team spot for the remainder of the day, UNTIL 5:00PM. At this time, all guests must leave both the grounds, and the parking lot. Teams will then be able to return to the Chilifest grounds Thursday, April 4th, at 8:00am. No vehicles will be allowed in the grounds, but teams will be able to park in the NEW general admissions parking behind the original frat row, and walk into the event grounds, with tools, water, and personal effects for the day. No additional building material, or anything remaining in the build for Friday will be allowed into the event grounds on Thursday.
A preliminary build/team spot inspection will take place at 1:00 PM, on April 4th. Any necessary adjustments will be notified to team captains. A final build/team spot inspection will take place at 5:00 PM on April 4th. At this point, ALL team spots and builds must pass inspection by stated Chilifest rules, and will also be inspected by a local fire Marshall. THURSDAY, APRIL 5th, teams may go get their beer from the designated beer storage area to bring to their build. ALL BEER MUST BE STORED UNDER BUILD, SECURED BY ALL TIERS FACED WITH SCREWS. This is to ensure the safety of team members & secure ALL beverages from opposing teams. We are excited to provide teams with more time to finalize their builds, and ensure safety. With these rules, teams WILL NOT be allowed to bring in tools to the Chilifest grounds on Friday. Please note, the time allotted is meant for finalizing any builds, structures, or spot set-ups. Do NOT use this time to start building. Structures brought to the event should be near completion, and the time provided should be used to get needed materials in-place, and assembled. We hope this improves the experience for our teams, and we look forward to seeing great, creative, and safe structures for Chilifest 2024.
