Chili At A Glance
This year will mark Marion County's 31st Annual Chili Cook Off!! Thousands of event goers will come out to taste chili, check out the decorated booths and support the "locals". Chili teams must follow guidelines but the recipe is up to each individual. Attendees get to cast their votes for "people's choice" while a panel of community leaders and professionals serve as judges in search of the BEST chili. Teams are formed by local businesses, organizations, and families in search of a friendly competition, cash prizes, and bragging rights! Live entertainment including local musicians and performers. Don't forget to check out the Children's area for games, bounce houses, face painting, and activities. Home baked goods, burgers, hot dogs, fries, cold Beverages & CHILI all add up to one GREAT DAY for the entire family!!
In addition to the thousands of folks who attend the Marion County Chili Cook-off, your sponsorship will put your business front and center with top billing in promotions for the cook-off (including radio, newspaper, magazines, and billboards), signage at the event, and mentions at the event on the public address.
