When the autumn weather hits Roanoke, that means it's time to go back to school—and time to warm up with a bowl of chili. The annual Greenvale Chili Cookoff is more than just a long-standing tradition. It also benefits Greenvale School's ongoing childcare for underprivileged families, an invaluable service for many throughout the community.
For 2016, the 37th Annual Cookoff features entertainment from The Worx and Uptown Band, along with an expanded selection of craft beers. As always, the festival features plenty of activities for kids and families and, of course, the delicious tongue-burning sensation of homemade chili.
