Annual Chili Feed and Raffle 2023

November 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Deschutes Historical Museum’s Annual Chili Feed and Raffle Returns
This Veteran’s Day weekend, Friday November 10 and Saturday November 11, celebrate with the Deschutes County Historical Society at their Annual Chili Feed and Raffle between 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Deschutes Historical Museum. Started over 35 years ago by Millie Rastovich Chopp, this fundraising tradition features “Millie’s Chili” cooked with locally raised Barley Beef from local Rastovich Farms, Deschutes County’s only official working Century Farm.  Chili is $10 per person and is available to-go.

In addition to lunch, tickets for this year’s raffle are also available with a chance to win gift baskets, selected from local and historic businesses. Past contributors have included The Old Mill District, Wild Birds Unlimited, Wanderlust Tours, Newport Market, Tower Theater and more. |
This fundraiser supports programming year-round at the Museum.

And during your visit check out the museum’s latest exhibit, Klunkers and Stumpjumpers: A History on Two Wheels, Mountain Biking History of Central Oregon. In the late 1970s, the logging roads and game trails of Awbrey Butte provided a playground of experimentation for early mountain bike pioneers who helped develop and cultivated the sport throughout Oregon.

Admission to the museum is free during this two-day event, with off-street parking available. Be aware of road closures Saturday 11/11, due to the Veteran’s Day Parade Downtown.
For more information on what’s happening at the museum call 541-389-1813 or visit our website.
