Southeastern Livestock Pavilion- 2232 NE Jacksonville Rd, Ocala, FL 34470


For the last 38 years, The Cornerstone School has hosted one of Marion County’s largest community events, the Marion County Chili Cook-Off! The Southeastern Livestock Pavilion overflows with local businesses and individuals making gallons of “secret recipe chili”, all competing to win the title of PEOPLE’S CHOICE CHAMPION. The fun continues in our Children’s Area, which is full of games, crafts, inflatables and much more. The day is jam-packed with live music performances coming from the main stage, samples of different micro brews in our Craft Beer Garden and loud engines roaring from our annual Chili Cook-Off Car Show. There is something for everyone at the Marion County Chili Cook-Off!
