Calling all chili cooks and lovers of chili!
The 2019 Chili Cook-Off will take place on Saturday, August 17, 2019, from 3-6pm beside the big red barn at the Perry County Fair. All proceeds benefit the Perry County Literacy Council. Interested chili cooks should contact Leslie Heimbaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 717-443-7635 for more information or to register.
Bring your prepared chili to the Fair to be judged by an experienced panel of chili judges, including WHTM weatherman Eric Finkenbinder (subject to changes in his schedule). Set-up starts at 2 pm and tables are provided by the fair. Guests will sample your chili for a 25 cent donation. Judging takes place at 5 pm, and prizes will be awarded for Best Chili Booths, People’s Choice Awards (given to the booths that raise the most money) and Judges Choice Awards. This year, a special trophy will be awarded to the team that raises the most money BEFORE the Chili Cook-Off. WQLV-FM will broadcast live from the event, and there will be games and prizes for participants of all ages.
Please come out and join the fun and help us to meet our fundraising goal of $3,000!
