Autumn Fest and Chili Cook Off

September 15, 2023, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Entertainment • Kids Zone • Delicious Food • Fun for All • Free Chili Samples

The season may bring cooler temperatures but the Parks & Recreation Department always spices things up with its annual Autumn Fest! There will be tons to do! We will have our scarecrow contest, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon artist, music, inflatables, pumpkin decorating (if available), and so much more!

PLUS! Don’t miss the Chili Cook-off among Village Departments, local civic groups, churches and schools. (Sorry, no individual entries will be accepted.) The Chili Cup Trophy will be awarded by professional judges and a People’s Choice Trophy will be awarded to the chili that earns the most popular votes. There is even a Jr. Chef Award for the best chili made by our youth organizations.
