BECKLEY, W.Va (WVVA) - An event that attracts up to 10,000 people to Beckley every fall has been called off. The 2020 Chili Night has been cancelled due to both COVID-19 and demolition work on Main St. in Beckley.
The event was scheduled for Oct. 3, and there's usually 40 or more chili vendors who participate and 25 other vendors as well, according to organizers.
During the first week of October, you can head to the event's Facebook page to see memories from the past 29 years. The 30th Chili Night is scheduled for Oct. 2, 2021.
Chili Night organizers ask that you order chili from local restaurants during the first week of October to honor Chili Night.
