Chili Bowl to Stay in Tulsa Through 2034
Officials from the city of Tulsa and Expo Square joined Emmett Hahn recently to announce a long-term deal to keep the Chili Bowl Nationals at the Tulsa Fairgrounds Expo Center through 2034. The agreement is the longest ever approved by the fair board.
The board also approved new grandstands on the north and south side of the racetrack. To mark the occasion the announcement was attended by Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor Matt Pinnell and other Oklahoma dignitaries. The annual winter event pumps millions into the Tulsa economy each year.
The upcoming Chili Bowl Nationals will take place on January 13-18, 2020.
