MV cancels Annual Chili Cook-off

The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG), a Main Street Iowa organization, today announced that the 14th Annual Mount Vernon-Lisbon Chili Cook-off has been cancelled.

Originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020, the event joins a long list of events cancelled due to COVID-19.

“Mount Vernon and Lisbon loves their chili and has been making this event a family favorite every October for 14 years,” said event chair Lori Winder. “We are all heartbroken at the cancellation, but are optimistic that we will be back in 2021 to celebrate our 15th annual event!”
