Calling all chili cooks

The Bryson City Chamber Chili Cook Off will mark its 21st year, on Saturday, Oct. 15, and the Swain County Chamber of Commerce is looking for cookers in all classes: traditional (red), white, and vegetarian.

Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place and average attendance is over 3,000. Held at Frye Street, adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad Depot in downtown Bryson City, the day-long event also offers live local music and crafters.
