Be the judge in Waterworks’ chili cook-off

Waterworks Visual Arts Center will hosts its 5th annual Big Chili Cook-Off from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 at the F&M Trolley Barn.
Attendees will have the opportunity to taste chili made by 15 local expert cooks and vote for their favorites. Those votes will determine the winner of the People’s Choice Big Chili Award.
Tickets to the event are $45, $40 for members. Cost includes chili tasting, beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, dessert and 15 tickets to use for voting. The event is for adults who are at least 21 years old.
This year, a panel of celebrity judges will select, by blind taste testing, winners in three categories including most original, spiciest and best all around in the chili throwdown.
The event will feature a Big Chili Cornhole Tournament for the first time. Teams of two can sign up for $25 per person.
Purchase tickets for the cook-off or sign up to participate in the cornhole tournament by calling 704-636-1882 or visiting waterworks.org.
All proceeds will support Waterworks’ educational and outreach programs.
Programs promote educational opportunities through hands-on studio classes for adults and children, artists’ talks, demonstrations and workshops, summer ARTventures classes for children, a summer middle school residency, Rowan-Salisbury Schools 5th grade ARTstop program and the Dare to Imagine Art Award for one high school senior.
Through outreach programs, Waterworks’ presence extends beyond the gallery walls through year-round studio classes and special initiatives for the general public, local school system, the developmentally and physically challenged, at-risk children and more.
Waterworks is proud to be a community partner in offering visual arts programs including ARC of Rowan, Catawba College, Plein Air Carolina, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, Rowan Helping Ministries, Rowan-Salisbury School System and more.
