The temperatures in Fairfield County may be dropping this weekend, potentially bringing in the first snow flurries of the season, but things will be heating up at Stamford Museum and Nature Center during the seventh annual charity chili cook-off. Scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 2, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Stamford residents are invited to get warm and fill up on delicious chili from a variety of local vendors, then cast their vote for their favorite.
Non-members of SM&NC can purchase regular admission tickets for $10 per person (children ages 10 and over) and will have access to explore all of the museum’s trails, animals and exhibits, including the larger than life vehicles at Touch-a-Truck, also being held on Sunday. A suggested donation for the chili cook-off is $10 per person, with 50 percent of the proceeds benefiting a fantastic cause— The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. You can also opt to bring a bag of non-perishable food items to donate and enjoy tasting and voting at no additional cost. (more…)
