Chili Night registration closes soon

Plans for Beckley’s 28th Annual Chili Night are underway and registration for chili booths are due by September 18. 

The block party will be held on Saturday, October 6, from 5 – 8:30 p.m. along streets in uptown Beckley.  The event features a chili cook-off and entertainment. 

Chili categories include restaurant/catering, non-restaurant businesses, organizations, individuals, best-tasting spicy chili and unique specialty chili.

Chili participants are asked to prepare a large quantity of chili to serve and they must be registered with the Health Department; someone with a food handler card must be in the booth (To reserve a spot in a class or for more details, call the Health Department at 304-252-8532).  Beckley Events will provide sample cups, spoons, napkins and crackers to the participants, plus participants will be reimbursed 25 cents per ticket collected.  Registration for the cook-off is due by September 18th – visit and click on Beckley Events to download a form or call 304-256-1776 or email to have one mailed, faxed or emailed.  Only the first 50 chili booths will be accepted (36 have already registered).  The 25 non-chili vendors spots are full, so the committee is no longer taking non-chili booth registrations.

A variety of entertainment will be featured at three stages. Myers Amusements will offer carnival rides in the lot beside Word Park.  Chili Night is one of Beckley’s largest events and is a fund-raiser for Beckley Events.
