The rules are quite simple. Contact Mary Ann Troutner at 260-564-0341 to indicate that you plan to enter the Chili Cook-off. This will allow the committee to have adequate supplies on hand. When the event date comes around, make your chili in a crock pot, then take it in the crock pot to Grace Christian Church at the corner of Orange and Main streets in Albion between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017. There is no entry fee. The winner will receive $25.00 in Albion Chamber Bucks.

Free Chili Taste Testing and voting for your favorite chili begins at 6 p.m. at the church. Bowls of chili will be available for a free-will donation until the supply is exhausted. Proceeds will be split equally between Grace Christian Church and the Albion S.T.A.R. Team.
