Chili Cook Off

The Missouri Valley Chamber of Commerce has made a decision to not hold the annual Chili Cook Off fund raiser event in January 2021.  We want our community to stay safe and healthy during this pandemic timeframe.  We will miss tasting all the different variations of soup, and the fun time spent with family and friends, that this event gathers together.  This will give an extra year to create the BEST CHILI EVER, to those participants that will compete in 2022!
