Our annual Chili Bowl Cook-off and Fundraiser is a culinary challenge for amateur and professional chefs and a creative showcase for area potters, artists, and bowl-decorating enthusiasts. Past Chili Bowl Events have invited spectators to CANO's Wilber Mansion to purchase a hand-made ceramic “chili bowl,” sample savory chili recipes, and vote for your favorite. Proceeds go to help CANO fulfill its mission to link artists, promote the arts, and educate the community. We hope to resume this tradition soon on the first Sunday in February. In 2020, CANO raised over $6000, thanks to our great sponsors and community members!
