February Means Chili in Harmony Square!

February Means Chili in Harmony Square!

Going on its 12th consecutive year, the Chili Willy Cook-Off is back in 2019 for their annual battle of the spoons! 

Join us in Harmony Square on Sunday, February 24th and watch how downtown Brantford comes alive as local restaurants battle for the title of Brantford’s best chili.  Goo’s Take Out & Catering won the first place ribbon for the last two years… will they reign supreme again? Another fan favourite is Strodes BBQ & Deli, who came in at a close second last year. 

Tickets for this event can be purchased at the event for $5 per person.  Upon entry, you’ll receive a reusable chili bowl; spoon and a voting pass to cast your votes.  With over ten competitors to sample, be sure to eat a light breakfast and arrive hungry so you have room to try them all! 

Be sure to bring your gloves, toque and ice skates for some fun on the outdoor ice rink in Harmony Square.  You’ll also enjoy live entertainment while you take it the festivities.  Proceeds raised from this event go toward free programming at Harmony Square in downtown Brantford – a great cause to keep our downtown buzzing with fun, family-friendly activities. 

The event takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Harmony Square (89Dalhousie Street, Brantford).  In support of the event, Dalhousie Street between Market Street and Queen Street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on February 24th, 2019. 

Join us for a fun February day of chili, skating and live entertainment this winter!
