Area chefs and wanna-be hot shots will create and name delectable concoctions of chili for the annual Heat is On! Chili Cook-Off. This seasonal contest challenges the taste buds of local “celebrity” judges and and rewards outstanding flavors with medals and People’s Choice awards. Costumes and creative chili displays count! Live music adds to the atmosphere, as do the silent auction and 50/50 raffle. It’s the “hottest” fundraiser around! Proceeds benefit Evansville Community Partnership, a nonprofit in charge of organizing several community events including the spectacular Fourth of July Festival. Chili Cook-Off admission tickets are approximately $15 per adult. Kids age 13 and younger eat free when accompanied by a paying adult. Grand Prize winner receives a large, fabulous trophy / coffee table pottery bowl made especially for the Chili Cook-Off by Matthias James, well known regional potter. Come for the samples, stay for the auction and enjoy the fun!
