8th Annual Chili Cook-Off | 10.15.17

Porticonow 1024x512 chilicookoff oct08

It’s that time of year. Temps are dropping. The leaves are changing colors. And Portico is hosting our Eighth Annual Chili Cook-Off!

Everyone is invited to join in for a time of fellowship and fierce competition. We will host the event at Lyon Park Community Center (414 North Fillmore Street Arlington, Virginia 22201) from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 15.

There will be an opportunity to taste and sample all the chilis, which will also be tested by an esteemed panel of judges who will determine this year’s top chili.

Bring your friends, family, and your award-winning pot of chili! And please let us know you are coming with your RSVP.

If you're attending the Clarendon campus night service, you are welcome to drop your chili off at Lyon Park Community Center anytime after 4:00 pm so you don't have to take it to service with you.

Those of you cooking up chili for the event, bring a serving utensil or ladle. For those who do not wish to bring chili, please consider bringing a dessert to share. No awards will be given in the dessert category but you will certainly be rewarded with gratitude!

If you have questions or would like to volunteer please contact Portico Member, Bianca Flowers at bianca@liveonthebside.com.
