Homemade Salsa Contest

It’s time to get spicy at the library! Join us for this 4th annual event for the entire community. Bring your favorite homemade salsa to be judged and shared. Cold beverages will be available to cool down your tongue—as needed!


You will stay with your salsa as the community comes around to sample.

Cups with chips will be provided. You will be responsible for spooning salsa into each person’s cup as they come around to taste.
