The 7th Annual Chili Bowl

When: Saturday, January 27
Where: Saratoga Clay Arts Center

Please join us on January 27th for our 7th Annual Chili Bowl. Area clay artists are busy making bowls for the event. Choose a hand-crafted bowl, fill it up with delicious chili, then keep the bowl when you're finished! You'll also be able to vote for "Best Chili" and support the efforts of your favorite chef.

Registration for the 7th Annual Chili Bowl Fundraiser will start at 8:00am on January 1st.

The Brook Tavern will be returning for the third time this year to defend their title of "Best Chili". In addition, we are very pleased to welcome Osteria Danny, Ravenous Crepes, Scallion's and R and R to the competition. The competion will be fierce and we promise you will have lots of fun. The Robonics Reggae Band will provide the entertainment and the restaurants will provide the chili for the event. There will also be a silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind original clay work by local and national clay artists.

Here's how it works...

To keep the lines short and the wait to a minimum, you may pre-purchase tickets and bowls online for a specific time slot. Since the event is 5 hours long, we will only pre-sell 200 chili bowls for each one hour time period. After 200 bowls are sold, the time slot will be closed. Your ticket(s) will be issued with the time period you choose. This has worked well to eliminate the crowding we have experienced in the past. Please arrive at the time specified on your ticket.  We will put more bowls out for selection each hour so everyone will get an equal opportunity to select bowls. Online registrations will take preference to walk-ins. If all the bowls are sold online, there will be no walk-ins allowed.

Time Slots:

  • 11:00am-12:00pm  
  • 12:00pm-1:00pm
  • 1:00pm-2:00pm
  • 2:00pm-3:00pm
  • 3:00pm-4:00pm

If you have any questions, require more information or would like to donate an item for our silent auction please contact the center at 518-581-2529.
