ANNUAL dream ride firefighter chili cook-off

On August 27, 2022, the West Stafford Fire Department will  again be attending and competing in the Fifth Annual Dream Ride Firefighter Chili Cook-off!

West Stafford Fire Department competed and won first place in our first appearance in 2019! The proceeds from our win went directly to the purchase of our UTV, which has since been put into service as a brush fire and remote rescue vehicle serving the town of West Stafford, as well as out mutual aid partners! 
Due to the circumstances of the past two years resulting in cancellations, we will be defending our championship at this year's competition!
Please come out and support your local firefighters, as well as the Dream Ride Experience and Hometown Foundation, at this fantastic event! Cooking will begin at 10AM, and judging starts at 2:30PM.  Individuals can purchase a ballot and sample each entry and vote for their favorite, and the team with the most votes will win the People's Choice award!

The Dream ride experience isn't just a chili cook-off, but a whole weekend full of fun activities for the entire family!
