On Saturday, June 1, one of the most popular events in the area will return when the Spilli Chili cook off sets taste buds to overdrive in Spillimacheen.

This year the event will expand with something for everyone.

Greg Bodnaryk is a member of The Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden, which will be involved with the event for the first time this year.

“We will be taking care of the beer gardens. We will have a fenced off area for that during the event,” he said. “We were approached and the organizing committee wanted our input about hosting events.”

This year Spilli Chilli will have live music, great food and lots of fun according to Bodnaryk.

“It is a family event. There is going to be a farmer’s market and crafts. There will be music all day, along with the chilli. It is a great day for the family.”

He added that an event like this is something people do not get to see every day.

“I think it is a fantastic, unique event that doesn’t happen everywhere. Every town may get the fair to come through, but the Spilli Chili is something that is a fun event as well. It is something that happened naturally…They are expecting nearly 1,000 people this year.”
