Welcome to the Town of Groton, Connecticut

Chili Cook-Off and Bakers Battle


Thrive 55+ Active Living Center, powered by the Groton Senior Center invites Charter Oak Federal Credit Union to join us and become a sponsor for our annual Chili Sale Cook Off and Scarecrow Contest being held on Saturday, October 14, 2023 from 4PM -6PM. This is a fundraising event where area First Responders (police, fire and ems) will compete to bring the Chili Trophy to their department. To add to this healthy competition the Bakers Battle Bake Sale is going to be in conjunction with these events.  Professional and Recreational bakers will be battling to be named the Best. Attendees will be able to enjoy the searing flavors of chili and sweet treats.

This is an all-ages community event.  Groton and surrounding towns’ departments will participate in this event.  All towns and communities come to support their team and watch them hoist the trophy in victory.
