To beat the August heat, this year’s chili cook-off will take place earlier in the day – from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. (In previous years, the event was held from 3-6 p.m.). Attendees and fair goers can sample hot, sweet, and spicy chilis for a 25-cent donation and vote for their favorites.
Prizes will be awarded for the Judges’ Choice and the People’s Choice for Best Chili, as well as for the Best Chili Cook-Off Booth at the end of the event. The Chili Cook-Off competitor that raises the most money before and during the cook-off will also receive a trophy.
There will be games & prizes for the entire family, with all the proceeds directly benefitting the Perry County Literacy Council.
