🌢️ Get Ready for Our 4th Annual Chili Cookoff at the VFW - A Blend of Tradition and Excitement! 🌢️

Remember when the fiery flavors at the Chatham VFW warmed us up on a chilly day? We're thrilled to announce that our 4th Annual Chili Cookoff is on the horizon! Get ready for a flavorful adventure that promises camaraderie and mouthwatering chili like never before.

As we host our 4th Annual event, we're excited to remember the kitchens that have been a part of our journey and embrace new options along the way. Our cherished traditions will always have a special place in our hearts, but we're also open to exploring fresh horizons.

Our first annual Chili Cookoff was a hit, with a vibrant crowd sampling a dozen different chilis from talented local chefs and restaurants. It was a chance to break free from self-imposed lockdowns and reconnect with friends and neighbors in a social setting.

But that's not all! Besides the scrumptious chili, we're back to raise funds for Monomoy Community Services and the Chatham Children's Fund through thrilling raffles, 50/50 auctions, and maybe even a heads and tails challenge. Your participation will make a real difference in our community.

Chatham Rotary's Annual Chili Cookoff: A Community Tradition Worth Savoring"

For four consecutive years, the Rotary Club of Chatham has been igniting the taste buds of Cape Cod residents with its highly anticipated annual Chili Cookoff. This event, hosted at the Chatham VFW, has become a cherished tradition, and we're excited to share the story behind this spicy affair.

The Cape Cod Chronicle, a local newspaper, focused on our chili extravaganza, capturing the event's spirit in a feature story published on March 30, 2022. As the chilly weather blanketed the Cape, the Chatham VFW became a warm, welcoming haven for chili enthusiasts and community supporters.

What makes this event truly special is the incredible chili and the sense of togetherness it fosters. After months of winter isolation, attendees were thrilled to reconnect with friends and neighbors in a social setting. It was a heartwarming reminder of the power of community.

But the Chili Cookoff isn't just about delicious food and camaraderie. It's also a powerful fundraiser for two local organizations, Monomoy Community Services and the Chatham Children's Fund. Through raffles and 50/50 auctions, the Rotary Club of Chatham raises funds that directly benefit the Cape Cod community.

Local restaurants have played a pivotal role in the success of our Chili Cookoff. Chatham Mood, Mom & Pops, Viera on Main, Pates, Chatham Cut, The Lost Dog Cafe, Lily's, the Red Nun, Drifters, the Squire, and Mac's Seafood have all participated, contributing their culinary expertise and unique chili creations to make the event a culinary delight.

The competition is fierce each year, with attendees casting their votes for their favorite chili in various categories. From the professionals to the amateurs, the chili-makers give it their all, creating mouthwatering dishes that leave a lasting impression.

As we look forward to our 4th Annual Chili Cookoff, we're excited to remember the kitchens that have been part of our journey while embracing new options. The Chili Cookoff isn't just a culinary competition; it's a celebration of community, generosity, and the rich tapestry of flavors that make Cape Cod a special place.

Join us this year as we continue the tradition, spice up our taste buds, and positively impact our community. Stay tuned for more details about the event and how you can participate in this spicy celebration of community spirit!

Don't miss the chance to meet Santa at his workshop, where he'll be available to greet kids from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Plus, a brass band will serenade you on Main Street, and complimentary horse and carriage rides will add a touch of nostalgia to your stroll experience.
