A favorite tradition among Jefferson County residents is the annual chili cook-off sponsored by the Golden Chamber of Commerce. It returns this Saturday, Oct. 13th, 1 to 4 pm. The cook-off has a new home this year — downtown Golden’s Parfet Park.
General admission tickets can be purchased at www.GoldenChamber.org for $40. For that price you can sample fare from over 30 chili competitors and 90 different beers (courtesy of Coors Distributing), plus enjoy a live show by country star Buckstein. Tickets for this popular event are likely to sell out, so I recommend buying them online, since you may not be able to buy them at the event itself.
