Omnivore - All the chili you can eat in Cabbagetown
This just in:
The 5th annual Chomp & Stomp Chili Cook-Off and Bluegrass Festival will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, in Cabbagetown Park at the corner of Tye Street and Kirkwood Avenue. We'll have more than 50 different individual teams and restaurants vying to be proclaimed the best chili cooks in their respective categories.
Cost to the public is $5 for all-you-can-eat chili. The music stage will feature such acts as Slim Chance and the Convicts, National Grain, The Bouldercrest Singing Group and many more. There will be an artists market and vendors serving food for those who choose not to partake of the chili. Sweetwater beer will be on tap.
The festival will officially open at noon when the chili serving begins. The festival officially ends at 6 p.m. but the music won't end until 8 or 9 p.m.
The Romp & Stomp 5k is entering its second year and will start that morning at 8 a.m. The route runs through Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown. The entry fee is $20 and the price includes a commemorative t-shirt.
