Chili Cook-Off

February 22 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join us at Vaughn Hall, home of the Montello Historic Preservation Society and Museum. We are hosting our first annual Chili Cook-Off fundraising event. To kick off our first year, we are showcasing 10 of your local dining establishments with their best chili. Taste Them All ~ Choose Your Favorite! Your vote is cast by dropping a quarter (or more) in the jar next to the kettle of chili that you choose to be the winner. The jars with the top 3 totals at the end of the event will be announced as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
All money collected will be used by the Montello Historic Preservation Society for maintenance and future events.
Your ticket price includes chili sampling, a bowl or 2 of chili (toppings available), cornbread, lettuce salad, chips, dessert, and a drink. Adults $7. Children 10 & under $5.
Activities for children include Chili Pepper Bean Bag Toss, Lasso a Hobby Horse, and Chili Pepper Coloring Pages. For the adults, a cornhole set will be available to test their bean bag skills.
Bring Your Appetite…and Don’t Forget Your Quarters!
