Sanctioned and governed by the International Chili Society, cooks will compete in Red Chili, Chili Verde and Salsa categories. There will also be non-ICS categories for a Youth Division for kids under 18 years of age and People's Choice Chili. Cash awards will be distributed to winning teams.
The New England Regional Chili Cook Off is very proud to announce that the event will benefit the Somers (CT) Fire Department and Patriot Guard Riders CT and the outstanding work that they do in our community.
