The free event will be held on Apple Valley Road, in the warehouse district just north of Dresden Drive, within walking distance of the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe MARTA station.
The event runs from 11 am to 7 pm. Visitors can sample chili from the contestants from noon until 3 pm, or while supplies last.
Live music will be provided Ian Schumacher, Martay & The Partay and The Commitaphobics. A Kid Zone will also be on site.
A total of four divisions are included: best chili amateurs, best chili restaurants, most spirited team and the People's Choice award. Celebrity chef judges will be on hand.
A portion of the entry fees will benefit the Brookhaven Arts Alliance.
No coolers or outside food or beverages will be allowed in the venue, and anyone bringing pets are asked to keep them leashed.
