DIXON – Think you have the best tailgate food or chili recipe in the Sauk Valley? This is the event for you.
The annual Dixon Main Street Ultimate Tailgate will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 22 in the Bean Blossom parking lot on River Street.
Cash prizes will be given to first-, second- and third-place winners, and for People’s Choice and Best Showmanship.
Setup begins at 6 a.m.,
and all cooks are required to prepare their entire chili or dish at the event, following Lee County Health Department guidelines.
Entry into the bags tournament is $20 per team and prizes will be awarded. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m.
Admission to the all-ages event is $5 and includes tastings.
You won’t miss any NFL action, either, because the game will be shown on the big screen outside.
The parking lot will be closed to cars at 6 a.m. Sunday.
