The Downtown Washington, Inc. Fall Festival Committee is excited to announce the 2017 Downtown Washington Chili Cook-Off on Friday, September 22nd. This is the 17th year for the current chili cook-off downtown.  Part of the proceeds of the 2017 Chili Cook-Off will be benefiting the Franklin County Area United Way. The United Way will have a booth selling hot dogs and other goodies.  Each cook-off team will have a donation canister at their booth for the public to vote for the Most Money Raised for the United Way. These proceeds will be donated and used locally by the Franklin County United Way. The teams will be competing for Best Chili and Best Decorated Booth, with other special competitions. There will be trophies and cash prizes for the winners!
