The Raintree Arts Council is sponsoring this year’s Missouri “Show Me” State Chili Cook Off on Saturday, June 13 at the Clarksville Riverfront Park from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. We welcome chili cooks from all over the U.S. to participate; online registering at International Chili Society is available, or register in the morning at the event. Please confirm if entering by calling 573-754-0335. Prize money totaling $1,500, awards will be given at 5 p.m. Public admission at the gate is $3, children under 11 years are free. Those interested in tasting chili can purchase .50 cent tickets for chili “samples.”
Enjoy assorted beverages, and beginning at noon, dance to the sounds of “Everyday People”. Chili Cook Off T-shirts will be available for sale. The American Legion Riders from Elsberry are “manning” the Beer Garden. Come on down to the riverside and join the chili tasting fun!
