On September 9, 2012, from 11:00-3:30, our Lake House Stage will host some talented musicians playing a more soothing repertoire than you’ll hear on our outdoor stages at The Big Chili Cook-Off.

At 11:00, stop in to hear Danny Masters, “A guitarist who can shred with the best of them or wrap us around his strings with a compelling and mesmerizing experience.”

At 12:15, listeners will be enthralled by Melodic Delights Ensemble, featuring violins and a cellist playing festive classical music.

At 1:30, Two Guitars Telling a Story will entertain you. Imagine Chet Atkins and his fingerstyle tunes combined with Eric Clapton and his sweet lead riffs joining together to play for you in your living room; this is their music.

Watch for New Artists

Posted in 2012, Evergreen Lake House, September 2012, The Big Chili Cook-Off, Who Gets This Whole Thing Going on 07-26-2012 by thebigchilicookoffevergreen

If you came to The Big Chili Cook-Off last year, you know there were many fantastic artisans who displayed their work. This year, we have several new artists setting up booths in the Evergreen Lake House, along with “coffeehouse” style music, silent auction items to bid on, and a wine bistro. This will be the perfect place to unwind, and enjoy a quieter part of our festival.

In addition to this great venue, Evergreen Park and Recreation District will be hosting a scrumptious new food court near the Lake House. When you’ve had your fill of chili tasting, stop by and see what delicious menu items are available for purchase. The day is shaping up to be one of the best cook-offs ever, so mark your calendars. We’ll see you on September 9th!

We Stand With You

A Day For the Little Ones

The Big Chili Cook-Off focuses on two things: community and family. With this in mind, one of pivotal cornerstones of the day is our children’s area.

volunteer firefighters in ColoradoBring your little ones for a day of fun and activity. Not only will they enjoy the music and the children’s firefighter challenge, but they will be able to experience the fun in an area created just for them. Your small ones can bounce (and giggle, and smile, and create a little ruckus) in our jumping castles. Then, when they’re ready for a quieter activity, they can enjoy the crafts tent where clever, crafty people will have designed something fun for them to create and take home. There will be jugglers, amazing and fascinating everyone with their mad skills. It will be a day of happy memories for everyone.

We’re so excited to see your whole family – so mark your calendars now for September 9, 2012.
