This is the second year for the downtown Oshkosh Chili Cook-off and it promises to be better than the last. I was pretty impressed with last years event, but they did run short of chili very early on. I think it may have been underestimated how much we love our chili and are so willing to try different types. I will suggest getting here right at 12:00 which is when sampling begins. Last year there was anything from cranberry chili to chocolate chili. I can’t wait to find out what there is this year. This event was sponsored last year in hopes of continuing to support the Day By Day Warming Shelter in Downtown Oshkosh. Please make a difference in the community event by giving back.
Not only will you get to experience unique chili samples from over 30 amateur chefs, but local beers will also be on tap, along with a DJ and children’s activities. This will also be the last outdoor Farmers Market for the year. The Farmers Market will go from 8:00-12:30 and sampling will begin at 12:00. So come on down Opera House Square on Saturday, October 26th in hopes to grow our downtown community. Sampling begins at 12:00.
There is still room to register if you think you have what it takes to win or just have fun. Register here.
Amateur judges will be awarding in categories of “Best Traditional Chili”, Specialty Chili”, and a “5 Alarm Chili”.
