Admission is $25, $18 for children and includes a handcrafted bowl to keep and trivia card. Each correct answer a participant makes on their card will give them a raffle ticket to enter to win View’s Chili Bowl Basket Raffle.

Homemade meat and vegetarian chili, stews, and soups will be prepared by local restaurants and served in newly handcrafted bowls created from View’s Pottery Workshop and by other artists, near and far.
