The City of Newberry is excited to announce that the 5th annual Healthy Chili Cook-Off will be held February 3, 2017 in Memorial Park of Downtown Newberry
starting at 11:00 am and ending at 1:30pm.
Our Healthy Chili contestants range from amateurs to local businesses. Winners will be chosen by People’s Choice. For a small donation to the Souper Bowl
of Caring, the tasting public will receive 2 oz. tasting cups for samples from each team and 3 different tickets, significant to the 3 judging categories.
Tasters can purchase more cups for more samples, but will only receive the voting tickets once. Bowls for chili will also be for sale at the ticket
booth. At the end of the cook-off, First, Second and Third place Overall will be announced. In addition, one cook will take the title of Most Original
and one will take the title of best Booth Decoration. Awards include a trophy and monetary prize for each category.
As this event promotes healthy eating, living, and giving there will also be Zumba featured at the event, as well as a blood drive with The Blood
Connection (blood drive lasts from 10am to 2pm). Funds raised during the event will go to a local food bank via the Souper Bowl of Caring.
The 2017 Healthy Chili Cook-Off will sponsor Manna House of Newberry.
