CANCELED: 31st Annual WHEB Chili Cook-Off


While we were excited to offer generous samplings of tasty chili from some of the Seacoast’s best restaurants, unfortunately, that won’t be possible this year.

The community still faces many challenges from a shortage of supplies to staffing, and our beloved local restaurants are some of the hardest hit. While many restaurants expressed enthusiasm for the eventual return of this time honored community gathering, continued staffing shortages proved an insurmountable challenge for them to commit this year. 

Another reminder that we are all still in a tricky time of rebuilding.

But wait… there is still fun to be had! Just one day before when ChiliFest was scheduled, New Hampshire Brewfest is back! Held on the beautiful grounds of Cisco Brewers Portsmouth, on Saturday, October 8th from 12pm – 4:30pm.

Admission includes entry to the session specified on your ticket, 5oz souvenir sampling cup, beer samples from nearly 50 breweries, and live DJ and festivities. Food is not included but is available for purchase from one of our exciting food truck vendors!
