Community Chill, March 13 6:30 pm at the Onyx Room (Western Ave Studios)
We're inviting you to our fourth annual chili and stew contest with music, games, community awards, and a DIY "Chilly" Dessert. Our goal is to build community in Lowell by bringing together young people and elders, downtown and neighborhoods, townies and newcomers. This annual fundraiser celebrates the projects and events that have activated our underused spaces, brought diverse populations together, and made Lowell better.

We Need Your Help!
We need your help in the following ways. Nominations due February 15 and chili and stew entries due February 25!
Award Nominations * Chili Entries * Sponsors * Volunteers
Nominate a Community Member or Group
We need nominations for people and groups you think have made a difference in making Lowell's public spaces more vibrant, exciting, kid-friendly, colorful, walkable, or better! All nominees will get a mention in our award ceremony, and winners will get a $20 giftcard for individual and 10 volunteer hours for a group!
Submit a Chili or Stew Entry
This year, we're hoping for a mix of cultural and ethnic stews with American chilis - anything tasty can compete! We are looking for all kinds: traditional and totally off the wall, meat or vegetable based—you name it. No cost to enter; categories for restaurants and individuals.
Get a VIP Table or Become a Sponsor
We honor all our 2020 Meteor Shower and Comet sponsors at this special event! Special perks for being a sponsor include VIP treatment for your organization, a banner at the event, and promotion on social media and on our mailing list.
Even if you aren't from an organization, a donation would be a big help! After a year of Strategic Planning with our Advisory Committee, we're kicking off a new era of DIY Lowell and raising funds to hire our first-ever part time Program Director. Donations big and small will help us reach our goal.
