GREENVILLE – Do you have a chili recipe that puts others to shame? If so, enter Main Street Greenville’s Chili Cook-Off Contest!
The contest will take place during A Day of Harvest in downtown Greenville on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Chili Cook-Off (sampling and voting) will begin at 11 am. Chilli will be judged by those who visit downtown Greenville during the A Day of Harvest events. The winner will be announced at 1:15 p.m. at the gazebo in front of the Darke County Courthouse.
Prizes for the winners have been sponsored by Youniques Boutique, The Meat Shop, and Brenda’s Beanery.
Entries are open to the public, but contestants must pre-register to enter the contest. There is no entry fee, but there is a limit of two chili entries per person. Contestants must supply a 4-quart crockpot of each chili entry and they must be available to serve samples of their chili.
“Last year, we had many families take the time to test each chili sample as a group. The kids enjoyed being involved,” said Amber Garrett, Executive Director of Main Street Greenville. “It also encourages the crowd to stroll from store to store during the day.”
The deadline to register is Thursday, Sept. 24 at noon. Registration forms can be dropped off or mailed to the Main Street Greenville office at 421 S. Broadway (located in the Welcome Center, directly beside KitchenAid Experience) or email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
