The Wauseon Chili Cook-off Committee met recently to evaluate this year’s Chili Cook-off and regretfully has made the decision to cancel this year’s Chili Cook-off. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the individuals that signed-up to participate with the Chili contest but in-order to have a successful Chili Cook-off contest we require at least double the number of contestants so that the community has ample chili to sample. We would also like to thank those vendor’s that signed-up to participate but with only a fraction of vendors compared to previous year’s attendance we felt that it would not be fair to the community of Wauseon with so few vendors.
The Chili Cook-off has enjoyed being a highly successful event since it’s inception in 2005 and we would like to thank the community for their support. The Chili Cook-off Committee will be meeting next month to decide the future of the Chili Cook-off.
