Entry into the competition is free, and chili cookers will be asked to open their pots to attendees at the Roundup.
“It is a great campus event with lots of entertainment,” said Matthew Lombardo, Centennial Village student hall director.
Between 300 and 400 people attended last year’s cook-off. Plans for this year will include “surprises” and live music.
“Red Dirt” refers to the color of soil found in parts of Oklahoma and Texas, and a style of country music popular in both states. Red Dirt festivals mainly revolve around the music, but can include other activities typically found at community festivals.
The ASU Red Dirt Roundup is sponsored by the Housing and Residential Programs Office as well as Centennial Village and Carr Hall residence halls.
