Fall Fest Tickets on Sale now!

Purchase your Fall Fest Tickets here!

This fun and casual event is Manning’s biggest fundraiser. It is held in the cafeteria and is a perfect opportunity to bid on our silent auction items, meet other Manning families, and of course – sample some of the best chili recipes around!

Tickets are $10 each pre-order (or $13 at the door). Your Manning student does NOT need a ticket. They will be at the Student Council sponsored dance that evening. (Please note: we don’t actually issue tickets – we’ll have a list of those who have paid at the door when you check in.)


Enter the 4th Annual Chili Cook-off

Are you a chili chef? Enter the 4th Annual Chili Cook-off at the Fall Fest!

Chili entries are accepted in red, green, and vegetarian/other categories. Enter your chili here! We provide the spoons and tasting cups. We ask that you provide a large crock pot of chili, a serving ladle, and any condiments you think enhance your chances of winning (cheese, sour cream, onions, etc.). Hot dogs will be available for siblings who may not be into chili tasting.


Volunteer at the 4th Annual Fall Fest

Can you help at Fall Fest??? We will need volunteers before the event, during the event, and to provide desserts. Use this Sign-up Genius link to see where you can help! Email Clare Cantwell at 303cantwell@gmail.com with any questions.
