24th Annual Chili Challenge!

24th Annual Chili Challenge!
The 2019 Chili Challenge will be on Saturday, October, 5th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on the Windsor Town Green. (Rain date October 6th)

Join in on the tongue-tingling flavors, toe-tappin' sounds and a great time at the Chili Challenge! Samples of delicious chili will be available for $1 each. Contestants work on their recipes all year and try new flavors and heat levels. There are chilis with beans, no-bean traditional chili, vegetarian chili, and every temperature from mild to way hot. Do you dare try them all?

Each business or individual contestant chooses a theme for their booth and cooks a unique chili recipe.

Participants are dressed in costume to accompany the booth's theme making this a fun and lively family event each fall. The recipes are amazing! "There is always plenty of great tasting chili, great costumes and plenty of family fun at this popular event," said Chamber President Sarah Gilligan, "We are extremely excited that so many cooks return again and again and we welcome any new chefs to the party."

Prizes will be awarded for Best Chili 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place; Best Booth Showmanship 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place; and the People's Choice Award.

The first 10 registrants’ names will be entered in a raffle for a $100 gift card to Geissler’s.
