July 4th Committee’s Chili & Soup Cook-Off to be held at fairgrounds
The Fowlerville 4th of July Committee has announced plans for its 16th Annual Chili & Soup Cook-Off, noting that this major fundraiser to be held Saturday, April 24 , from 4-7p.m. at the Fowlerville Family Fairgrounds. All proceeds from the event go towards paying for the fireworks and other costs incurred in putting on the community’s July 4th celebration.
Both the Cook-Off and the July 4th festivities were cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and public-health restrictions that had been enacted.
The Cook-Off, in past years, has been held at the VFW Post. However, with limits on how many people can attend an indoor gathering still in place, the committee approached fair officials about holding an outside event at their location.
“The committee is very grateful to the Fowlerville Fair Board for making this event possible by allowing us to offer the Cook-Off at the fairgrounds where we’ll have enough room for social distancing and still be able to put on a fun event,” said Brandon Denby, the committee chair.
Another major change is offering soup in additon to the chili menu. Local professional and hobby chefs can compete in either category with 18 quarts of their favorite chili or soup in a variety of interesting categories.
Participation is by advanced registration only and registration is limited. To receive an Entry Form or for more information, please contact Bdenby@livgov.com or by phone at 517 540-8823, or Michellsoli@yahoo.com
