29th Annual Chili Cook-Off Cancelled

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

The Five Points Association Board of Directors, and Group Therapy, have elected to cancel this year’s Chili Cook-Off in Five Points, originally planned for Saturday, November 7, 2015. The event was slated to take place in Martin Luther King Memorial Park, which suffered serious damage as a result of recent flooding and has been closed by the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation Department until further notice.

While Five Points merchants suffered relatively minimal damage in the recent floods, we are all devastated by what has happened throughout our state and our region and would like to focus our attention on recovery in the Midlands.

The decision to cancel the event did not come easily, and the Five Points Association wants to express gratitude to the chefs who have signed up and to our sponsors for embracing the event. The Chili Cook-Off will return in 2016.
