Chili Cook Off

The Cultural Arts Council, in partnership with the City of Douglasville, is ready to celebrate Spring with the community’s most popular event of the year - the annual Taste of Douglasville!


  • A restaurant/ business showcase

  • Exciting performances on two stages

  • Community booths for products and services

  • A children’s entertainment area of art, exploration, and merriment.

Each year, participants not only enjoy Taste of Douglasville, but they also help the Cultural Arts Council support school programs reaching local students, providing affordable spring and summer arts camps in county and city parks, free Family ArtVenture curricula-based school performances followed by the same artists performing spring and fall concerts for the whole family, critically acclaimed gallery exhibits at the historic Roberts-Mozley House, and many more special events like the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Thank you all in advance for your support!
