Details are released on chili cook off in Wauseon


Scheduled for Sept. 26 on Fulton Street

The Wauseon Chili Cook Off will be held on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fulton Street. The Chili Cook off Committee is asking for the public’s help. There is a need of chili contestants, craft vendors, artists and artisans.

There is still time to enter that favorite chili recipe to win bragging rights and also have a chance to win $400, $300, $200 for the best chili and also $50 for best decorated booth.

Come downtown and vote for the best favorite chili as the Wauseon Police and Wauseon Fire departments battle it out for bragging rights. The committee wants to fill Fulton Street with booths and all of their products.
