Some like it hot... Darien Nature Center Hosts A Chili Challange

The Chili Challenge is back by popular demand on Saturday, September 17 from 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.  Hosted by the Darien Nature Center this will be the fourth year that local chefs  are rolling up their sleeves and competing for the title of "Best Chili."  The event will be held on the grounds of the Nature Center located on 120 Brookside Rd. in Darien.  Tickets are available online.

The competition will be fierce as competitors are a diverse group that includes participants from three firehouses, local restaurants and even grocery store staff that will create some of the most unusual and delicious chili that you will ever taste! There will be a panel of four distinguished judges, including the First Selectmen.

In addition to delicious chili, this event serves  up dancing to live music courtesy of the Truck Stop Troubadours, spirits, games and even a mechanical bull that is sure to keep everyone entertained. There will also be a variety of vegetarian and fish food options as well as culinary tastings from the Darien Cheese Shop and El Placerito Taco Truck. A highlight of this event is the silent auction that will feature many wonderful and valuable items and packages.
