The 2017 Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce Chillifest is finally here, taking place this weekend on the Taylorville Square. The event will feature a number of different attractions outside of the sanctioned chili cookoffs, including a bags tournament, and a tent where attendees can sample chili and salsa made by the cookoff contestants.
Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show, and says the Chamber has handed off the reigns of the Bags Tournament.
Chillifest will also feature the “People's Choice” tent, where Chillifest visitors will get the chance to sample chili and salsa made by those participating in the chili cookoffs.
Hornbuckle suggested visitors get to the People's Choice tent early, as chili will be served while supplies last.
