26th Annual ChiliFest

Sponsored by: Community Action Agency of New Haven

Community Action Agency of New Haven (CAANH) hosts its 26th annual ChiliFest Saturday September 15, 2018 at East Shore Park in New Haven from 11a to 4pm.  The event raises money for the CAANH Emergency Food Pantry and provides entertainment for the entire family.

The chili tasting takes place from 12 to 3pm, and everyone who buys a chili kit tastes all the chili and votes on their favorite chili to determine the People’s Choice winner. Official judges vote on the best red, green and salsa chili and those winners are eligible to continue to the World Chili Cookoff, where that winner wins $25,000!

There’s something for everyone. 25 different chilis to taste, beer tent, live bands all day,  Classic Car Show sponsored by WPLR, moon bounce and face painting, and food of all kinds! You don’t have to be a chili lover to find something delish to eat.

ChiliFest 2018 is looking for anyone with a $25,000 chili recipe to participate as a chili chef -  there’s still time!  If you want to enter, contact Sharon Willard at 203-387-7700 Ext 7220
