The Poudre Canyon Fire Fighters are preparing for one of their hottest events of the year, their annual chili cookoff! A tradition begun in March of 2012 as a fundraiser for the fire department, the event will be held in the Poudre Canyon Fire Station #2 at 6:00 pm. In addition to the chili competition, there will be a live and a silent auction and numerous door prizes. So far, auction items include Rockies tickets, Archery lessons, a sunset cruise on Terry Lake, a New Belgium bicycle, and gift certificates from local venders.
Even if all things blazing are the specialty of the fire department, you don’t have to be a firefighter to compete in the cookoff. For information on how to enter your own favorite recipe, contact Ralph Matzner at
The event will be held on April 7, 2018 at Poudre Canyon Fire Station #2, located  in the upper Poudre Canyon near MM88 (33689 Highway 14). Admission is $10 per person or $25 per family.
Funds raised will be used to purchase new equipment, provide training for fire fighters and emergency medical staff and to match grants.
