The Chili Bourbon Festiva brings the spice through music, bourbon and chili, giving patrons the chance to sample an array of all three over the two-day celebration. This inaugural event will feature six chili tastings and 15 bourbons, including American traditional bourbons, as well as eclectic selections, such as Maker’s 46, Adirondack and Larceny Bourbon. In addition, the festival will offer beer and craft cocktails. Country music stars Colt Ford and Waterloo Rival take the main stage Saturday, Dec. 16, with local musicians on stage both days of the festival. 

The Chili Bourbon Festival is open Dec. 15 from 4 – 10 p.m., and noon – 10 p.m. on Dec. 16th. Ticket prices start at $10 for pre-purchase, and tastings can be purchased on site. For more information and to purchase advance discounted tickets, visit chilibourbonfestival.com.
