With over thirty different amateur chili cook-off teams, we invite you to explore the many options for a fun fall favorite – a traditional dish for many, chili! The public loves tasting the wide variety of chili samples and enjoys voting on favorites. Last year this event was host to an array of surprisingly, yet tasty offerings such as: a pineapple chili, vegan chili, meat lovin’ chili and MANY more chili samples! Amateur Judges will be on site awarding in categories of the “Best Traditional Chili”, “Specialty Chili”, and a “5 Alarm Chili”. Other activities include a beer tent with micro brews & brews as well as great music by Salza Manzana from Noon – 3pm.
