Chili lovers of all ages are invited to the tenth annual ChiliFest on Sunday, March 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Ridgefield Recreation Center, 195 Danbury Road. Visitors can sample chilis by amateur chili cooks as well as professional chefs from local restaurants.
Amateur cooks can win prizes and bragging rights as they vie for the People's Choice Award, based on votes from ChiliFest attendees, or the Judges Panel Award, decided by a panel of Ridgefield's best restaurant chefs.
Entry is free for amateur cooks, only requiring two gallons of the entrant's homemade chili. Cooks of all ages are encouraged to enter. For more information or to purchase tickets go to www.ridgefielddems.org.
