Ben's Chili Bowl 60th Anniversary Celebration

August 22, 2018
From: 10:30 AM to 10:00 PM

60 years in the making, join us and our community as we celebrate 60 years of Ben’s Chili Bowl, the Ali Family, a legacy of community service and 60 years of great chili half-smokes. There will be a press conference at 10:30am, a family-friendly street festival from 11am-3pm and an evening fundraising Celebration Gala at 7:30pm at the Historic Lincoln Theatre. 

Ben’s Chili Bowl is first and foremost about FAMILY and COMMUNITY. For 60 years, Ben’s has graciously served the people, and every guest has always been embraced as family. When segregation was still alive, Ben’s offered a peaceful gathering place and safe haven for ALL people, regardless of any differences in background or perspective. Society has grown and changed, but Ben’s remains the same and continues to celebrate people from all walks of life as they come together to eat, laugh, and discuss life as they see it. On Wednesday, August 22nd, please join everyone at Ben’s Chili Bowl as we celebrate 60 years of just being ourselves and doing what we do.
