21st Annual Chili Bowl Fiesta

For two decades, the Chili Bowl Fiesta has been a favorite for both the local and WSW communities! Join us for our 21st Annual Chili Bowl Fiesta on February 24, 2018!

More than 20 Hudson Valley restaurants and chefs donate 50+ gallons of chili, satisfying meat-lovers, vegans, and vegetarians alike. Guests can also buy a paper bowl, and bottomless bellies can purchase additional servings.

Nearly 1,000 handmade bowls, mugs, and tumblers are created throughout the year by staff, interns, resident artists, students, and local potters. Because so many hands contribute to this process, each vessel is one-of-a-kind, and widely varied in shape, size, color, surface design, and, of course, price-point ($10-$100). Guests always have a blast looking for the perfect pieces while listening to live, local music!

Ceramics Studio Manager Ruth McKinney Burket says that ultimately, “This project is about way more than just making a whole bunch of bowls and making money. It’s about bringing people together. I think that’s a part of who we are as Women’s Studio Workshop, as a community.”
