Help West Bay Rotary choose the best chili in the Midcoast and help charities at the same time. Local restaurants will serve up their best chili at the annual West Bay Rotary Chili Challenge and you can be a judge. You get to try them all and vote for your favorite. Net proceeds from the event will benefit charities and non-profit organizations.

The Chili Challenge will take place at 16 Bay View Hotel Banquet Room, 16 Bay View Street, Camden, on February 9 during the U.S. National Toboggan Championships weekend. Doors and cash bar open at 4:00 pm and the chili will be served from 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children and are available at the event.
