Oshkosh Chili Cook-off

Chili Cook-Off

The Oshkosh Chili Cook Off is one of my favorite events that takes place in downtown Oshkosh. It is always the last Saturday in October, which just happens to be the last outdoor Farmers Markets as well for the year. This year, it is Saturday, October 25th. Proceeds from Oshkosh Chili Cook Off help to support the Day by Day Warming Shelter.

For just $10.00 for adults, you can enjoy all the chili you can handle. With over thirty different amateur chili cook-off teams, you can sample your favorite traditional chili or brave some of the unique flavors that are created each year and then voting on your favorites.  Some popular unique flavors in the past have been pineapple chili, chocolate chili, vegan chili, meat lovin’ chili and MANY more chili samples!

Whether you you plan to register or you just want to enjoy the day by hanging out downtown for the Oshkosh Saturday Farmers Market and Chili Cook off, it is sure to be a day of great smells and fun.

It is finally here! The Oshkosh Saturday Farmers Market is making its summer comeback this Saturday, June 7th. starting at 8:00 Am-12:30 PM on the 400 and 500 blocks of Main St. and the 100 block of Church Ave. Remember last year, Oshkosh was voted 1 of 101 best farmers market in America. Wow, that is quite an honor!

Not only will you enjoy over 130 vendors every Saturday morning with fresh, in-season fruits and vegetables, eggs, honey, syrups, ciders, cheeses, pasture-raised meats and poultry, fish, jams, preserves, cut flowers, and nursery stock but also a  wide variety of handcrafted items. A new sign ribbon cutting and music will be taking place as well. Of course, don’t forget about about Pie on the Porch. Enjoy a slice of homemade pie with all proceeds benefiting the Oshkosh Historical and Archaeological Society, stewards of the historic Morgan House.
