Brewtober Chilifest - Chili 2018
Brewtober Chilifest - Chili
Chili Sign Up
We are needing 50+ chili donations. There are no rules on type of chili. Make your favorite recipe of beef, pork, chicken, sausage, vegetarian, venison, wild game, gluten free. Multiple entries are allowed and appreciated!! It also increases your chances of winning! However, if you just want to donate without entering contest - no problem- your chili will not be assigned a number. Just mention that when you sign up. All entries will be entered for a door prize drawing around 6 pm.
There will be a people's choice award for best chili (Blue Ribbon Apron) announced around 8:30 (Voting ends at 8:00) There will also be a runner-up award.
You must bring at least one gallon of warmed chili in a large crockpot or cooker - labeled with your name and phone number on the lid and pot. ( If you are making chili but cannot come to the event, you can make ahead of time, freeze it and drop off at church from Oct. 8th - 12th. email Karen for details: [email protected]) We will have ladles. We recommend you use a LINER for your chili. We will furnish condiments (grated cheese, onions, fritos, crackers, jalapenos etc). There will be a separate table for these. Chili Drop off is 2-4pm the day of the event on Oct. 13th, 2018 at the St. Raphael courtyard. There will be tables outside the gated area under the covered car space for you to drop off your chili and we will set it up for you. Entry to the festival begins at 5:00 and requires a ticket. Competition Chilies will be numbered and patrons will use the single red ticket to vote for their favorite chili on the large chili bulletin board.
It will be self-serve chili during the event and we will have volunteers to help oversee the area. However, you can serve your own chili, brag about it, and decorate your station if you like but it is not necessary. We want you to wander around and enjoy the event. Don't forget to take your crockpot home at the end of the night if you can. Otherwise, you can pick it up after the 10:30 am mass Sunday, Oct. 14th, or by the end of the next week in the church office. (Hours are 9-5 Mon-Thurs and 9-12 on Friday)
WE CANNOT HAVE A CHILIFEST WITHOUT YOUR CHILI, SO THANK YOU FOR DONATING!
