Elizabeth Street will be closed and the smell of chili will be hanging in the air on August 31 in Okotoks. The annual chili cook off known as Chili Fest will take place from 10 am - 3 pm, along with an Artisan Market, live music, bouncy houses for kids, face painting & more family fun.
A taste of chili will cost $5.00 with all proceeds from the Okotoks based event will go to the Foothills Humane Society. Chili will be served from 11 am - 1 pm. There will be prizes for the judge's choice and people's choice as well as for the best theme display and most enthusiastic team.
"This has long been a favorite event for the community" said Jay Magnussen, a long time OKotoks resident and local Realtor with RE/MAX. Our Okotoks real estate team including Jay Magnussen & Savannah Magnussen will be in attendance and are eager to cast our vote for BEST CHILI!
Competitors still have time to sign up for the cook off, and can do so online here, or can phone Barnes at 403-305-2286. Entry is $20 and includes 20lbs of ground beef from Hirsche Fraser Meats.
