Who doesn't love some good chili!  Good stuff from the groovy mild to the "good lord cut my tongue off" HOT!  Yes, it is that time of year where we welcome the Sundance Family Festival & Chili Cook-off Festival in Fort Collins CO.

The event takes place at the Fort Collins Senior Center, 1200 Raintree Drive.

Friday nights events begin at 6pm and feature a prime rib dinner, western art show, live auction and performances from our very own Brian Gary and Cowboy Poet {and personal friend} Gary McMahan.

Saturday's event runs from Noon to 5 and of course includes more food.  Chili, salsa and hot wings tasting and competition, beer tasting, live music, petting zoo, face painting, carriage rides and a cash bar.

If you love to cook and would like to prove you have the best and/or the hottest chili then this is a call to YOU!  If you are ready to melt some spoons and enter the competition please call 970-221-6644.
