    Happy Fork

    A new addition to the Chapin Labor Day festivities for this year is the Taste of Chapin, the official Restaurant Week for our community. Taste of Chapin is produced and hosted in partnership by the Greater Chapin Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Chapin, with the goals of increasing consumption, fostering innovation and inspiring consumer confidence in our restaurant members.

    Sponsored by Happy Fork, the Taste of Chapin will send diners on a tasting tour throughout the entire Greater Chapin community. During the week long campaign participating restaurants will offer a multi-course lunch and/or dinner at a value-added price giving locals (and visitors) the chance to channel their inner foodie and finally try that restaurant on their wish list. The restaurants that participate are not only known for their exceptional cuisine, they also spare no expense to give diners an extraordinary culinary experience.

    We have a number of ways for our businesses, non- profits, civic organizations and community groups to be involved in this event.

    CCAL Community Art Project Logo_draft

    Crooked Creek Art League (CCAL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit consisting of over 100 artists from Chapin and the surrounding lake communities. We are once again partnering with the Town of Chapin to create some exciting public art with the goal of shining a light on the vibrant arts scene in Chapin and surrounding lake communities. The concept for the project – artfully adorned trail markers- began as a way to showcase the Chapin Nature Trail that is being developed on the acreage surrounding Town Hall.  This simple concept has evolved into “The Arts Trail through Chapin” - a highly visible multi-part public art display that will feature a community scavenger hunt and auction culminating at the 2021 Chapin Labor Day Festival.

    The art will consist of creatively designed aluminum posts topped with aluminum sailboats reminiscent of the larger sailboats rolled out in the League’s 2019 project “The Arts Sail into Chapin.”  In conjunction with the 2021 Chapin Labor Day Festival, which draws over 20,000 visitors each year, this project is a wonderful opportunity to show the vital role the arts play in our thriving community. A small number of trail markers will be installed on the Chapin Nature Trail and others will be auctioned during the Chapin Labor Day Festival. Funds raised from the auction will go towards a larger scale community art project the League is planning for Chapin. The trail markers will be on display at sponsoring businesses for the duration of the Scavenger Hunt from September 1 - 5. After Labor Day, the Trail Markers will become part of a growing "Chapin Arts Trail" which spotlights public art throughout the town.
