Last year was so much fun, we have decided to host another Chili Cook-off this Fall!

Chefs: Admission is $10.00 to enter your chili. Please have chili cooked and ready to go in a crock-pot or similar container. Plugs will be available for you to plug into. Please set aside a cup or so of chili out of your crock-pot for judges to taste. Please get to the Site early to set up!


Visitors: Admission is $4.00 per adult. This will grant you 4 tasting tickets. More tickets may be bought for $0.25 each. Chefs will take your tickets and give you a cup or tasting bowl of chili. Tasting will begin around 12:00pm.


Judging: There will be a panel of 3 judges. Judges will go around and sample each chili and score it. Scores will be released after all judges have completed their rounds and filled out their judges card. We will try to have judges taste the chili around 11:45am. Prizes will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.


This event is a fun way to gather and have some fun with familes and friends at our site. Reunions are possible in many different ways, and this is one way to have some historic fun, but also have a chance to learn some history! Weather permitting, we will meet under the Pavilion. If the weather is not favorable, we will be in the Visitors Center for the event.
