From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., visitors at the second-annual Discover Virginia Chili Cook-Off sample local and visiting cooks’ unique chili recipes, each casting one vote to decide the winner of the people's choice award. Held on the fields of Greene County Community Park, the festival also invites attendees to relax on blankets and in chairs and take in live musical performances while digesting their tasting cups. This Groupon is not valid for the wine tasting also taking place during the event.
Discover Virginia hosts a variety of outdoor events that celebrate local wines, foods, and retailers in a family-friendly environment. During the annual food and wine festival, local vendors flock to Greene County to pour samples of Virginia-made wines and fresh bites as families enjoy activities such as live music and face painting. Especially popular is the yearly chili cook-off, which sets chefs against each other as they compete to see which recipes can set off the most fire sprinklers.
