Optimist Club Annual Car Show and Chili Cook-OffFundraiser
Every year the Optimist Club of Redlands puts on a large car show in Sylvan Park featuring hundreds of classic and antique cars on display, as well as a chili cook-off competition. Multiple vendors offer a variety of different crafts, specialty foods, and beverages including beer from many different local breweries. There is live entertainment, face painting, slides, and other kid friendly attractions as well. It is the largest event put on each year by the club and 100% of proceeds go to supporting youth activities as well as scholarships for students in the local area.
