Annual Chili Cook Off Announced - Sun. Sept 23

It's sad to see summer go, but with fall on the horizon that means one good thing...the annual Victor Gardens Chili contest!  

Please mark your calendars for  Sunday, September 23rd! 4:00p.m.  in Val Jean Park

To continue the tradition, we're seeking to crown a new neighbor for the best chili in Victor Gardens!  

Please RSVP to and let us know if you will be attending and if you will be entering your famous chili into the contest. 

This event is open to everyone regardless if you enter chili into the contest or not. Due to the lack of funding this year, it's going to be a real community effort to pull this off. If you're able, when you RSVP, please sign up to bring a topping or two (listed below) or a dessert to share if you're not going to be entering chili into the contest.  

Here are the toppings we're in need of: 

  1. 8 cups  Shredded Monterey jack

  2. 8 cups  Shredded cheddar

  3. 2 cans Sliced black olives

  4. 1 can sliced jalapeƱo peppers

  5. 3 -16 oz tubs of sour cream

  6. one large Red onion diced

  7. 6 avocados chopped into chunks

  8. 1 c. cilantro leaves chopped

  9. 5- limes sliced

  10. 3 large bags Tortilla Chips

  11. Corn Bread muffins

Also, please bring your own lawn chairs or blankets to sit on and something to drink.  More details will follow as the event gets closer (which neighbors are brave enough to enter the contest, who's judging, etc...).  

Please help this event to be a success and RSVP so we can plan appropriately!  Even if you don't enter your chili into the contest, we hope all can attend!
