There is nothing like fall in New Hampshire. To complement the brilliant fall foliage, Waterville Valley Town Square has scheduled several festivals!
On Saturday, September 29, from noon until 2:30 p.m. things heat up in Town Square with Waterville Valley Resort’s 14th Annual Chili Challenge and the sizzling country sounds of Jimmy Lehoux. Local restaurants will be all fired up to compete for your votes and the red-hot title of “Champion of Chili.” Sample all the chili challenge entries for just $7 per adult, $5 for children 12 and under.
FREE Outdoor Concert
Ruby Records recording artist, Jimmy Lehoux, takes the stage on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for a free outdoor concert in the Town Square. His unique style of traditionally rooted contemporary country music is sure to get the crowd warmed up and hungry for the Chili Challenge.
White Mountain Storytelling Festival
Also, returning for its second year is the White Mountain Storytelling Festival on September 28- 30. Festival-goers will meander between two venues within Town Square, with each location featuring experienced storytellers and a different type of story, geared toward either young children and families, or older children and adults. This year’s featured storyteller is popular New Hampshire author and storyteller, Rebecca Rule, whose humor is sure to delight audiences. The White Mountain Storytelling Festival starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening with ghost stories at the Town Square gazebo, continues from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday (with time for some sampling at Waterville Valley’s 14th Annual Chili Challenge), and finishes Sunday morning with Sacred Stories at 9:30 a.m. at the Snowy Owl Inn’s solarium. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.nhstorytelling.org.
