Sunday, December 5, 10am – 5pm

We need your help to make this new event a success! We hope that by combining the San Diego Ceramic Connection Chili Cook-Off and the McKinley Arts & Crafts Fair, we will attract more crowds than each event did separately, and thus earn more money for McKinley’s music and arts programs. Here’s how you can help:

1. Help us get the word out: Tell your friends, neighbors, family….send an eblast, post on Facebook, sent a Tweet! With chili tasting, arts and crafts vendors, a beer tent and live bands throughout the day, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

2. We need Chili! As in the past, we need McKinley families to supply the chili. Sign up here to bring a pot of chili.

3. We need help the day of the event. Please donate a few hours of your time to help in the chili tent, kids craft table, set up or clean up, whatever is your preference. It takes a lot of workers to put on an event of this size; please help us make it a success.  Sign up here to help at the event.
