We're excited to announce that this year's Fall Festival will be at Shelby Farms' new Heart of the Park! On Oct. 30, join us at the Hyde Lake Picnic Pavillion from 2:00-5:00pm for food, fun, and fellowship!
We'll have all of the Fall feel-good foods, which, of course, includes chilli! In the words of David Letterman, "It's not a competition, it's only an exhibition. Please, no wagering."
We'll provide the hot dogs, veggie dogs, drinks, and chilli fixins'! Please visit the link below to sign up to bring chilli, cornbread, side dishes, desserts, apple cider, or hot chocolate.Learn more
