WEBER COUNTY, Utah -- Music, chili and a chance to help people struggling to find enough to eat all came together at Snowbasin during Labor Day weekend.

Snowbasin's Labor Day festival is also a food drive event for the Utah Food Bank's "Beat Hunger by a Mile" campaign.

Sunday’s festivities featured free live music and barbecue, and Monday is the main event: The Third Annual No Name Chili Festival.

Snowbasin’s culinary team will serve up batches of chili from their personal recipes, and guests will choose the winner.

"We have numerous Sous chefs and executive chefs that each prepare two different recipes, and then the chili fest guests get to vote on whatever chili they like best and we actually serve that chili all year-long in our Don Paul lodge right behind me,” said Tess Hobbs, Snowbasin’s Director of Marketing.

The chili fest starts at 12:30 Monday, and all ages are welcome at the event. Guests are encouraged to bring food to donate, and those who bring non-perishable food items can get a discount on “chili tasting kits” at the event.
