Wild Willow Farm 5K & Chili Brew Fest
Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 9:00am
Location: : San Diego, California
Details: We believe vegetarians should eat delicious chili, too!!
The smell of chili wafts through the air. A craft brew is waiting to wash it down. You are wandering the grounds of a San Diego farm to the sound of live music on a clear September day…
The second annual Wild Willow Farm 5K & Chili Brew Fest unfolds Saturday, September 28, at 9 a.m. This harvest season celebration features a chili cook-off and beer tasting, plus a 5K trail run/walk.
Live music, farm tours, garden workshops and kid-approved farm fun add up to a great fall day with options for everyone! Get to know this San Diego Roots sustainable farm and education center.
There is a lot of new stuff growing down on the farm and the funds raised at the event will help Wild Willow Farm purchase a truck to deliver produce to their CSA and to the many awesome restaurants that will soon be able to order Wild Willow Farm’s Organic Produce.
Here is what the Wild Willow Farm 5K & Chili Brew Fest has in store:
FOOD, BEER, AND FARM FUN!
Sample chili and beer, cheer on the 5k runners, and enjoy live music and tour Wild Willow Farm. The first 100 chili tastings purchased will include a handmade ceramic bowl and first 100 beer tastings purchased include a signature glass, both are yours to keep!
Learn about farms and gardening and enjoy one of San Diego’s open spaces. Activities are planned for all ages. Click here to buy taste tickets.
VEGETARIAN CHILI COOK OFF! Motivation? Compete for a CSA box (that’s a box of delicious produce from community supported agriculture). SIGN YOUR CHILI UP HERE, before space runs out.
Judging will take place at Wild Willow Farms, Saturday, Sept 28.
BREW FEST! Are you a local brewery that would like to help make this event successful by donating delicious brew? If so, please FILL OUT OUR BREW DONATION FORM HERE!
WILD WILLOW FARM 5K! Runners, enjoy a trail run that gets you out in the fresh air to enjoy some of San Diego’s countryside. Runners get discounted tasting tickets! For an extra $10, runners can add beer or chili tasting tickets.
This race is a “fun run”, meaning we will not be officially timing, but we will have a race clock on hand, so be sure to check the time when you cross the start line. We will have awards for the top 3 overall male/female finishers.

In an effort to save the environment and NOT cover land fills in Sandy Feet Events t-shirts, we will not be providing t-shirts to each participant.
Instead, we will have a screenprinter on hand and if you bring your own plain t-shirt, we will screenprint it for you with our event logo/slogan! There is no charge for this, but we welcome donations.
For those who do not want to bring your own shirt, we will have a limited amount of shirts for sale for a nominal fee of $10 that we can screenprint for you. 100% of the all shirt proceeds will go to Wild Willow Farm.
VOLUNTEERS! The Wild Willow Farm 5K & Chili Brew Fest is a great time to be introduced to this San Diego educational farm and help a cause while meeting others who enjoy the outdoors, local food and craft beer. Click here to volunteer.
