Chili Cook-Off & Auction, Taste or Enter, Jan. 13

Chili Cook-Off & Auction, Taste or Enter, Jan. 13

January 13 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Rugby’s Second Annual Chili Cook-Off seeks tasters to vote on their favorites, and 20 entrants to bring a crock pot with your unique take on this tasty winter dish! As an added bonus, there’s a Silent Auction for some nifty treasures, so bring your checkbook! Weather won’t affect this indoor event, so it will go on unless snow/ice makes roads dangerous.

Come cast your vote for the best chili. Twenty will battle for that honor. If you would like to enter your chili in the competition ($10), see the details and fill out the entry form HERE. Entries are due for delivery at the site at 4:15 p.m. EST.

Taster Tickets are $15 in advance and may be purchased HERE now, but $20 at the door. Kid tasters under age 10 are free.

Online ticket sales close 24 hours prior to the event.

Each taster will receive 15 tickets (votes) to correspond to the $15 admission fee. Extra tickets (votes) are available for purchase or simply adding cash in the voting boxes on each table.

Voting for the chili cook-off and silent auction will promptly end at 6:30 pm EST and winners will be announced at 6:45 pm EST.

Your ticket purchase helps non-profit Historic Rugby continue the mission to protect and preserve this village and share the stories of people who established Rugby 143 years ago this past October.

We look forward to seeing you!
