Pats Peak

Henniker Rotary Club Chili Fest

Henniker heats up with the Henniker Rotary Club's Chili Fest. Attracting some 2,000 visitors to Pats Peak Ski Area, the Festival proceeds benefit local, regional, and international service and humanitarian projects sponsored by the Rotary Club. An admission fee is charged. Judge two chili tasting competitions, one for area restaurants and another for individuals and service organizations. Contest entrants will be judged on the creativity of the recipe, the overall taste and appeal of the chili and the ability for the chili to be produced in mass quantities. The public will crown the "Peoples' Choice" award winners in both categories. Event includes chili sampling and voting, barbeque, classic car show, activities for kids and a variety of chili-inspired booths and vendors. Mark your calendar and prepare to join your neighbors and friends in this annual family friendly event. Gates open at noon. This is a Henniker Rotary Club event, hosted at Pats Peak.
