2017 Chili Cook-Off December 2!
Bring a crock-pot of your favorite chili to the St. Marys Armory to find out if it really is “the best in town” – good enough to win the jackpot!
The jackpot will be the total of everyone’s entry fees. Fee is $5 per entry.
Judging begins at 5:00 p.m. and entries need to be placed by 4:45 p.m. Each entry needs to have an accompanying tablespoon to serve samples. S.M.I.L.E. will provide sample cups and miniature spoons. If you would like to sell your chili, you will need to be present to serve it. Condiments may not be added to the samples that are judged – only to the bowls of chili that are purchased (see note below).
Make sure to label it with a memorable title! Members of the general public will be able to sample each entry and vote on their favorite at the end of the line. Each voter will be stamped immediately prior to voting to indicate that they may not vote again. Judging will end at 6:30 pm or when someone runs out of chili. The winner will be announced by 7:30 pm. Winner need not be present in order to claim prize.
Important: If you would like to sell your chili by the bowl, please bring bowls, napkins, spoons, and any condiments you would like to serve with your entry. You keep these proceeds.
Winner agrees to have his or her name posted here and/or in the St. Marys Star.
Cinnamon rolls and water will be available to purchase; these proceeds will benefit the St. Marys Initiative for Local Events.
