5th Annual Chili Cook Off

The Knights are bringing back our annual chili cook off on Saturday, November 9th. This year we are featuring chilies from our local businesses and individual foodies from the community. All our guests will get to vote and select winners in both pro-am categories. Everybody wins because all proceeds go to support Knights’ charitable causes.

Check back here soon for more information and a list of businesses who will be participating. Download latest flyer here.
