Friends of Wehr present their 10th Annual

Groundhog Day Chili Cook-off Fundraiser

Saturday, February 26, 2022 (6-8 pm)


Do you think your chili is THE BEST chili around?  You are invited to match your skill and favorite (secret, of course) chili recipe with others of your ilk at Wehr Nature Center’s Groundhog Day Chili Cook-off. And the best part is, you get to take home a real gold (colored) trophy, a blue ribbon to keep, and bragging rights to share with your family, friends, and the whole neighborhood if you win.

To be a chili cook, you must register. Call 414 425-8550 by Monday, February 21st and then bring six or seven quarts of your fabulous ready-to-serve chili to Wehr by 5:30 pm on February 26th. Registered cooks get their meal FREE.

Join the fun as a chili taster. Purchase a ticket online to partake of the MOST FABULOUS chili around. You will enjoy samples of all the chilis before voting on your favorite to determine Wehr’s supreme chili cook. Your meal will also include assorted side dishes, corn bread, chili fixings, delectable desserts, and one glass of wine or beer.

Help us raise funds. Bring your wallet and bid at the Silent Auction to discover some great finds. All funds raised by this event will support Wehr’s programs and facilities.

$40 per person, $30 for members of the Friends of Wehr

One alcohol drink included, more available for $5 each. (It’s a fundraiser!)

Reservations guarantee a space. Walk-ins are welcome as space allows.
