Celebrating year 15 with the Quarantine Bean

Enjoying tasting at last year’s Baldwin Chili Fest.

Don’t be silly and forget to register for your chili. This year for Baldwin’s Chili Fest, participants need to go online and register for their drive-thru chili meal.

You have the chance to win a 12-month membership to Baldwin’s Anytime Fitness, a $500.00 gift certificate to Nilssen’s Foods, a diamond solitare 14K gold pendant from Fennern Jewelers, three oil changes from Flagship Ford, a massage therapy/acupuncture gift card and spa basket from Western Wiscon Health, $200.00 in cash from First Bank of Baldwin, custard for a year from Culvers and a $100.00 gift certificate from Striker’s Lanes.

There are many ways to participate in Chili Fest and win prizes. Win $250 Chamber Bucks in the medallion hunt or decorate your car for a chance to win a girt card from a local business. Just by purchasing a chili meal, your name will automatically be entered into a Grand Prize drawing.

mission of the Baldwin-Woodville Chamber of Commerce is to be a membership organization dedicated to meeting the identified needs of the Baldwin and Woodville area by fostering economic opportunity and a favorable business climate within the region.

“The Chamber is privileged to work with local area businesses, the combined Baldwin-Woodville Area School District, the Villages of Baldwin and Woodville, and the community members that make our towns simply amazing.”

“One the favorite parts of Baldwin-Woodville communities the excitement to enjoy and participate in both Baldwin and Woodville’s town celebrations. Woodville celebrates the deep Norwegian heritage with Syttende Mai, always held the second weekend in May. Shortly after it is time to enjoy Baldwin’s new event this year, Windmill Days. This celebration will be held the first weekend in June. Our “Chamburger” stand and medallion hunt are old town favorites to keep an eye out for when enjoying the town festivities!”

“The Chamber is involved and participates in not only both town celebrations, but we also host Chili Fest in Baldwin the last weekend in September, which has become a community highlight along with October’s Trick or Treat on Main Street, our highly anticipated Horse Parade and Visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus the first Saturday in December.”

“In addition to the community events we sponsor, the Chamber offers membership to large corporations with hundreds of employees to small business with one or two staff members. Each one uses our Chamber as a way to network and build relationships to not only strengthen their individual business, but to grow and build our communities. We also offer “Chamber Bucks” to our members to purchase. This program encourages money to be spent with our participating members, locally.”
