“The Great Home and Garden Cook Off”

One Batch of Chili
Come one, come all to the 4th annual Great Home and Garden Cook Off!!
Unlike our other categories, this exciting special will be showcased on Centre Stage at the Fair on Saturday.  We hope that all of the fine cooks out there will enter their delicious homemade chili to be judged in front of our discerning Fair goers!!
After the judges have rendered their verdict, the chili will be shared with any hungry fair attendee who wishes to sample the tasty entries.  This class is offered by members of the Julie MacLachlan Charitable Foundation in aid of local initiatives.  Julie was a proud member of our Home and Garden division, not to mention someone who loved to cook.  It is with great pride and in memory of a great friend, that we offer this fun and fantastic class!
Participants are asked to bring their chili to center stage between 12:45 and 1:00p.m. on Saturday.  There will be a table located there for you to drop off your entry.
