The Award Goes To …

You may have noticed that we don’t simply call our event the Chili Cook-off Music and Arts Festival.  Its title is The BIG Chili Cook-off Music and Arts Festival, and there’s a reason for that.  Last year we had 60 cooks and 100 different chilies.  Well, brace yourselves, this year we hoping to have 100 chili cooks and as many different chilies as they can pull together.   We will be giving first, second and third place awards for red, green and vegetarian chilies in the judges category.  We will also be awarding three Peoples’ Choice awards for the first time this year with a first, second and third prize for best overall chili, chosen by attendees, and of course we will still be awarding Best Restaurant Chili and Best of Show for the most lively and impressive chili booth.  But, it isn’t really about the awards.  It is about a lot of people getting together for a fun, festive day in September to honor our volunteer firefighters and raise money for each of six volunteer fire departments, so in the end, we all win.
