There are never enough minutes in my day or days in my week for all the things I want to get done, including all of these fun events going on around Nashville. Let’s say, hypothetically, that I had a completely open calendar this week. Here is how I would be spending my time!

Music City Chili Cook Off

11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Event Pavilion at Centennial Park
West End Avenue
Nashville, TN

I realize that some of you might not be able to go out during the week, but hopefully you can get out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather this weekend at Centennial Park. The Music City Chili Cook Off will have tastings, live local music, a rock wall, and many other activities for the entire family to enjoy!

How are your chili cooking skills? Are you the chili master in your family or group of friends? Well then, don’t just go to eat. Whip up a batch of your own and join the competition because you could walk away with a $200 cash prize! They’re in search of some expert chili cookers to compete, and as an incentive to my readers, they’re offering a discount. The normal price of entry is $30, but you have the opportunity to compete for only $25 if you mention you heard about the event here!

Entry to the event is $5 for adults and $2 for children 10 and under. Click here for more information and registration form!
