The Rotary Club of The Villages Foundation Inc. presents 24th Chili Cookoff and 11th Home and Garden Show, this year we are also adding a Craft Beer Festival!

The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 4, 2023, at Lake Sumter Landing, in The Villages, from 10am to 4pm and chili and beer tasting begins at noon.

 We are expecting 10,000 plus people to come out to the event. Not only does the event allow us to support local charitable efforts; but also gives exposure to your business from the fastest growing retirement community.

If you participated last year, thank you for your support in creating a quality event where businesses and residents enjoyed 50+ chili competitors and 150+ businesses from the local area while supporting a wonderful organization. Proceeds from the event are invested back into the community to organizations like, Take Stock in Children, The Buffalo Scholarship Foundation, Local Food Pantries, Clean Kids Backpack Program, Boys and Girls Club, Boy Scouts, Cleft Palate Shares Program, Polio Plus and many more.
