The 19th Annual ‘Thin Air’ Chili Cook Off, sponsored by the Kirkwood Community Association, will take place on the Village Plaza on the afternoon of August 31, 2019 from 12 – 4pm. Our community is focused on “Life Safety’ issues and the beneficiaries for net proceeds from the event are the Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department and Kirkwood Rescue Avalanche Dog Foundation, both of which are 501(c)(3) corporations.
Entry to the event includes a commemorative glass and a kit to taste the chilis and vote for the favorite. Cash prizes are awarded for Crowd Favorite, Best Chili and Best Booth. In addition to chili, beer and wine tasting, the event will feature live music provided by the Wesley Orsolic Band, a supervised Kid’s Zone with games, face painting, and arts and crafts.
