North Bennington Chili Fest
The NorShaft Lions will be offering up over 30 different chilies at their 11th annual Chili Fest on Saturday, January 26, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Sample five different chilies for $6, accompanied by cornbread and more. The chilies range from beef (hot, medium, and mild) to sausage (hot and mild), to a variety of chicken, turkey, white, vegetarian, venison, moose and even a bacon and a sweet potato chili! The event will be held at Saint John the Baptist Church on Houghton Street in North Bennington. Last year’s event saw over 230 people, so this year it will be expanding into yet another room. Proceeds will help the NorShaft Lions provide scholarships to graduating seniors, support to families coping with pediatric cancer and fund numerous other service projects sponsored by the Lions.
