You can get some hot chili, or cook up your own batch to compete, for a good cause with the annual Hand In Hand Chili Cook Off, going on 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds!
This year’s Chili Cook-Off is going to look a bit different! Drive up to the Fair Center at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds on Saturday, January 30, to pick up your chili samples from our many chili teams then hop online to vote, bid on silent auction items.
Be sure to tune into our Facebook page to see the winners! Don’t forget to purchase $5 and $20 raffle tickets from Hand in Hand or purchase them in the drive thru line the day of the cook-off. You can also try your hand at the gift card grab while in line in for your chili!
Hand in Hand staff, participants, volunteers, chili teams, and board members will be taking precautions to keep you safe at our event and we hope you will too!
