The 22nd annual Steinley Cup Microbrew Festival in the Good Times Valley is just around the corner! This year’s competition is set for Saturday, August 19 at Veterans Island Park in Saratoga.  An integral part of the afternoon is the Chili Competition and the Craft Show.  This event is becoming more popular every year, while still remaining a fun, family-type gathering.  
There are three categories in the Chili Competition: red chili, green chili, and salsa.  People’s Choice voting will begin when the Festival gate opens to the public at 1 pm. Attendees will pay once, and get to taste all the chili entered in the contest.  They can vote for their favorite, and the top cook in each category will receive a certificate of recognition and a $50 Chamber gift certificate and bragging rights!
Contestants are asked to please bring one gallon of each entry in a crock pot (or other similar container) to the park by 12:00 pm.  Containers must be picked up by 6 pm.  For an application to enter and a full list of rules, go to the chamber’s website stop in or call the chamber office (307-326-8855) by August 14th.  
Local and regional crafters are invited to sell their art and wares in this beautiful park environment.  There is no charge for the booth space and you will receive one complimentary entry to the event.  Set up will begin at 10 am and all vehicles must be off the island by noon. If you are interested, stop in or call the chamber office by August 14.
What a great way to enjoy the afternoon--bring your family’s favorite recipe and sell your baubles while listening to great live music!
