The Hanover Chili Cook Off is a community staple for family entertainment, chili tasting, raising funds for local nonprofit organizations, built around the PA State Chili Cooking Championship. Local bands, The Kelly Bell Band, a magician, a juggler, a face painter and many varieties of chili are the highlights of the day. Good food and beverage concessions too!
