GrandPeppey: The GRAND OL' CHILI COOKOFF MascotGrandPeppeyGrandPeppey: The GRAND OL' CHILI COOKOFF Mascot

GrandPeppey is the face of the GRAND OL' CHILI COOKOFF! A red hot chili pepper that has seen his share of life. He is spicey, handsome, a hard worker, loves music and loves helping people in the community that run into difficult circumstances from time to time.

GrandPeppey is on the GRAND OL' CHILI COOKOFF logo, which was created from a collaborative effort of the Chili Cookoff Team and graphic artist Rainey Kirk. We are very proud of our logo and very thankful to the graphic artist talents of Rainey Kirk. Rainey lives in the community of Leiper's Fork and also created the Nashville Preditors logo. You can check out his work here: http://precisionillustrator.com/

The Leiper's Fork community has such talented and generous people who are continually willing to give of their time and efforts to support each other. Another talented artist in the community created a statue of GrandPeppey for us from metal! Dave Thompson is the artist and he is also a farrier for many horse owners and lovers in Willamson County and beyond. Check out the photo below, that's Dave and his masterpiece.
