Hotshot local cooks will grab their chili spoons and return to the What’s Cookin’ Chili Cook-off, sponsored by The North Bend Bar & Grill, 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10, at Si View Park.
Cooks compete for people’s choice and judges awards. The top chef gets a $300 cash prize, trophy and bragging rights.
The people’s choice is made by festival-goers, who pay $5 for a chance to taste chili. Proceeds are donated to the festival and the community sampling begins at 1 p.m. Awards are announced at 2:30 p.m.
All chili is cooked on site; pro teams not allowed.
