Bloomingfoods and Parks and Recreation are teaming up again to bring you the 26th annual Salsa Contest at the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market from 10am-12pm on Saturday, August 23rd. The contest begins at 10am with nine local judges tasting salsas in raw, cooked, and specialty categories, with winners announced around 11am. Gather at Showers Plaza just outside of City Hall to witness Master of Ceremonies Steve Krahnke of WTIU, Greg “Rags” Rago of Nick’s English Hut’s famous salsa-making demo, a salsa (the dance kind) performance from Arthur Murray dance studio, and partake in a free salsa tasting yourself! Whether you are preparing your favorite recipe(s) for the event ahead of time or sampling scrumptious salsas the day of, this event is fun for everyone! If you are interested in participating in the Salsa Contest, the instructions on how to do so are below.
First, second, and third place winners in each category will be awarded prizes from BIRA, Bloom Magazine, Bloomingfoods, The Chile Woman, The Chocolate Moose, Friends of Art Bookshop, Goods for Cooks, JL Waters, the Local Growers Guild, Parks and Recreation, Revolution Bike and Bean, and Uptown Café, and more!
RULES & GUIDELINES
The Bloomingfoods website is undergoing some big changes over the next few weeks! Most of the information you know and love is still here, but we are hard at work with Bloomington's own Blueline Media Productions to give you a whole new look and feel, while adding some exciting new features. Thank you for your patience!
