Kevin Sur of Artist Home (Doe Bay Fest, Slack Fest, Golden Gardens Summer Bonfire Series) and CB Shamah, owner of Columbia City Theater, and producer of the "Welcome to Doe Bay" documentary started a chili cookoff in 2009 to raise money for the Ballard Food Bank. This year's event promises to be the biggest yet.
The cookoff, scheduled for 1pm on October 28th, will be held at Hilliard's Brewery (1550 NW 49th Street). In addition to the number of chili recipes to sample there will be cornbread and music. Performers to date include Shelby Earl and Country Lips.
Tickets are on-sale now through Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets are $10 but you can buy a ticket at a higher amount. For every $3 raised the Ballard Food Bank can provide 15 pounds of food to those in need.
