Let’s have a contest to find out!

$100 Second Prize                 Veterans Memorial Hall

$50 Third Prize                      22001 W. Manning, San Joaquin

How it Works for Contestants

  • Bring 1 Quart or Liter of homemade salsa in a jar with a lid between 4:30 and 5:30pm. No late entries.
  • Tape your contact information (name, address, phone, email), the ingredients that are in your salsa and recipe for your salsa to the jar.
  • The salsa cannot have any dairy, meat, fish or shellfish/shrimp, or alcohol.
  • The winning recipe will be used to make a special batch of San Joaquin Salsa. The winner’s name will be featured on jars and marketing materials for the salsa. The winning recipe will be used to make salsa for a community economic development project. We might have a contest every year if this is successful.

The Community Votes for their Favorite Salsa

  • Everyone can be a judge in the contest. Limited to the first 50 people.
  • Each registered judge will only have one ballot.
  • This will be a blind tasting so you will not know who made the salsa until after the ballots are counted.

You must live in the City of San Joaquin to enter. One entry per person.
