Wakeman Town Farm Holds Chili Cook-off & Barn Dance

Wakeman Town Farm


Sunday, August 3rd


Wakeman Town Farm is turning up the heat.

Do you have a killer Chili recipe worthy of being crowned the WTF Chili Champ?  We are inviting teams comprised of folks from local civic organizations and groups (Westport Fire and Police Departments, Westport Y’s Men, Westport Woman’s Club, etc.), restaurants, farms, downtown business, families and friends to compete for bragging rights to Westport’s most winning chili in Wakeman Town Farm’s first-ever Chili Cook-off. In keeping with our farm roots, we encourage your team to use locally sourced ingredients and to share your recipe with the crowd.

Each chili will be judged by all who attend the event and there will be prizes awarded as well.

We are still looking for a few more teams to join us on Sunday, August 3rd from 2:00pm-5:00pm for the Chili Cook-off, and we hope you will consider putting together a team together to compete.

What do I need to do?

Simply email our organizer, Craig Charlton, ccrider453@gmail.com by Wednesday, August 1st.

For more info about the Chili Cook-off or to sign up your team. Include the name of your team, the name and cell number of the head chef/point person for your team. Craig will send you a note with confirmation and details how much chili to bring and what supplies are provided.

The Event

It will be a day of family fun and fiery taste treats for all ages. Both the chili cook-off and the barn dance will be open to the public. The cost for the event is $20 for Adults, $5 for children and $50 per family of 3 of more. Admission includes chili samples and cost of the band. Refreshments will be available for an additional charge and all proceeds will go to ”raise the roof” funding for Wakeman Town Farm’s classroom space.
