Chili Cook-Off

After a one year hiatus, we are excited to announce that the Benton County Chili Cook-Off is back!  We have made a few changes that we hope you will enjoy!

This year the Philomath Police Foundation joined forces with The Sheriff's Foundation to present to you the "2019 Public Safety Chili Cook-Off",  The venue has also changed to the Philomath Rodeo Grounds at 502 S 13th ST, Philomath OR 97370. 

The Chili Cook-Off is a community event that’s fun for the whole family and a great way to raise money for local programs. Each year a different non-profit agency is selected as beneficiary of the event.

The event is put on by a dedicated committee of volunteers and includes a variety of activities including demonstrations by the Benton County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse, K-9 demonstrations, the REACH Air-Medical Services helicopter, Coast Guard, Oregon Army National Guard, Marine Patrol, Corvallis Fire Department, Philomath Fire and Rescue, children’s activities, music and…of course…chili tasting!

Teams of public safety professionals, local businesses, and other community organizations compete against each other to produce the best chili in their category. Winners are selected by a panel of judges and people attending the event!!

Mark your calendars for Sunday September 8, 2019!

Additional event details will be released as the event draws closer! Stay tuned!
