Arts & Entertainment Highlands Annual Chili Cook Off Western Style

Every year, the Highlands Chamber of Commerce organizes a chili cook off and each year is a little different from the previous one. This year, the theme is “Western” all the way, from the décor right down to the attire and the public is invited to get out your boots, bandanas, hats and come to the Highlands Community Building Saturday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. Mike Murphy will provide the mood music for the evening.

For chili-lovers who would rather eat than cook, tickets will be sold at the door, $20 per person (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and children 12 and under get in free. Soft drinks, beer and wine will be served to help cleanse the palate and put out the fire. Diners will decide the winners of the evening’s competition by voting for their Favorite Chili, Hottest Chili and Most Unusual.

If you would like to enter the event as a competitor and fire up your best chili recipe, bake your best batch of cornbread ever or perfect the family’s secret salsa recipe, contact Jan Healey one of three ways: by phone at (828)526-5841, email her at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
