“We’re excited to celebrate a decade of the Rock ‘n Folk ‘n Chili Cookoff. Our focus at Horton Records has always been: musicians first, community always, and this event embodies that philosophy,” said Brian Horton, president of Horton Records. “It’s amazing to see so many familiar faces returning every year. It’s such a special night for the musicians and the community who supports them.”
Donations of non-perishable food and coats will be collected at the door for those in need. Those who choose to donate will receive discounted admission to the event. All event tickets include all-you-can-sample chili from Tulsa area restaurants and food trucks – while supplies last.
Horton Records, a volunteer-based, nonprofit Tulsa music organization, was a 2022 Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence Awards finalist in the “Arts and Humanities” category. The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits’ ONE Awards honor 21 nonprofits throughout the state for superior leadership and exceptional service to their constituents and communities. In 2022, the label released “Anvdvnelisgi,” pronounced “Ah Nuh Duh Nay Lees Gi” or “Performers,” a groundbreaking contemporary album of original music performed entirely in the Cherokee language. Produced by Jeremy Charles, the project is supported by the Zarrow Family Foundations’ Commemoration Fund.
General admission is $20 in advance, and $25 day of show. A limited number of reserved tables of four are available for $200 plus fees. Kids 12 and under are free.
