Annual Chili Bowl Sale Returns for 21st Year at University of Evansville


On Tuesday, October 31, the hearty smell of chili will fill the air at the University of Evansville (UE) when the Clay Club holds its 21st annual Chili Bowl Sale.

From 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., or until the bowls and chili run out, UE Clay Club members will serve chili from open-air cauldrons on the East Terrace Lawn near the Ridgway University Center.

This community event draws not only UE students and staff but also friends from afar. Customers select a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl made by UE art students, enjoy chili for lunch, and keep the bowl.

For $10, attendees can purchase a unique ceramic bowl and fill it with chili. For those who prefer to preserve their pristine bowls, lidded containers will also be available. The event also offers larger, handcrafted bowls, priced between $15 and $100, making it a must-attend for both chili lovers and art enthusiasts.

A significant portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local food organization, furthering UE’s commitment to fighting hunger within the community. The remaining funds will be allocated to the UE Clay Club, providing essential support for students’ attendance at conferences, hosting visiting artists, and embarking on studio and gallery visits.

For additional information, please call the UE Department of Art at 812-488-2043.
