Chili for Charity 2016

  • Date: 02/27/2016
  • Location: Oak Hollow Farm

It is time again to mark your calendars for the 16th annual Chili for Charity event sponsored by Ecumenical Ministries, Inc. This year’s cook-off will again be held at Oak Hollow Farm in Fairhope on Saturday, February 27th.  The fabulous, fun-filled festival has something for everyone.  Besides being able to sample some of the best chili that Baldwin County has to offer, music lovers can dance to crowd-pleasing tunes by local favorite, Blind Dog Mike and the Howlers.  Also, performing on the stage in the barn will be the Encore group from Fairhope High School. Outside Dr. Gee will be building amazing balloon creations for the kids—And when you add a bake sale, with out of this world homemade baked goods, a hay ride, inflatables, antique tractors on display courtesy of the South Alabama Antique Tractor and Engine Club, and a mechanical bull ride for all ages—It’s the perfect recipe for a great afternoon of family fun.

This cook-off is still one of the best bargains around.  Admission is $30 for an adult admission with a handmade chili bowl created especially for the event by a local Baldwin County potter, $10 for adults and children 12+, and $5.00 for children 3+. All the fun begins at 11:30 am and runs to 2:00 pm or until the chili is gone.  So, come early and bring your appetite. 

Sponsorships and teams are always needed.  For  more information call: 928-3430. You can also find the registration forms on our website, . Come for the fun and help support your neighbors in need through the many social service programs of Ecumenical Ministries, serving the community for more than 46 years.
