The Deschutes Historical Museum invites the public to our Annual Chili Feed & Heritage Fair event November 9-10 from 11am to 3pm at the Deschutes Historical Museum.

The annual chili feed features “Millie’s Chili,” cooked with locally raised Barley Beef from Rastovich Farms, the oldest working family farm in the county, as well as an old-fashioned bake sale and fundraising raffle. Among the prizes is a full year of History Pub table reservations for the 2019 History Pub season.
