Hoedown & Chili Cookoff

With a panoramic view of the Sewickley Heights landscape, the fundraiser will feature a great night for cowboys and cowgirls of dancing, country music, a Hoe Down, campfire, and a chili cook off between other wonderful non-profits in the Sewickley area. 

Several non-profits from the area will be paired with local breweries to compete in a chili cook off.  Guest will sample chili from Child Health Association of Sewickley, Laughlins Children’s Center, Village Green Partners, Sewickley Valley YMCA along with several other non-profits.  After sampling each entry, guest will vote for their favorite chili and award the non-profit a $250 donation for their organization.  Dinner will also include beer from several different local breweries, cornbread, and dessert prepared by Fern Hollow Nature Center’s board of directors and Sewickley Confectionery.

The evening will also feature The Turpentiners , a good time Country and Rural Swing band from Pittsburgh and the chance to kick your boots up and learn how to square dance with the help of a caller from the International Association of Square Dance Callers.  

Tickets for the Square Dance and Chili Cook Off are $20 for members and $25 for non-members.  Must be 21 years or older to attend.  Tickets can be purchased in advance on-line at or by calling 412-741-6136.
