COTUIT – The winter will be coming to an end next month and the Cotuit Center for the Arts will be warming up guests with a special chili event.

The 16th Annual Poetry and Chili Fest will be held on Saturday, March 5 at 6 p.m.

The evening will begin with a chili and cornbread contest as attendees will sample up to 30 different entries.

Cape Cod Poet Christine Rathbun Ernst will lead the poetry portion of the evening. Ernst is a writer and poet who performs regularly on stage and at local open mics. She also co-hosts the monthly Salon of Shorts at Cotuit Center for the Arts.
