Great Dorset Chilli Festival

The festival is back with a new venue: Stock Gaylard, Sturminster Newton

At last the festival gets to celebrate its 10th anniversary with a celebration of…….. the chilli! If you’ve been before you’ll know that it’s a top-notch food festival with loads of stalls for the chilli-hater: charcuterie, lots of cheese, gin, ceramics, ice cream, jewellery, brownies, olive oils, dressings etc. After all, the organisers of the festival know they need to look after everyone! But if you’re coming for the chilli, they’ve got the lot. Hot sauces and mild sauces, chilli jams, pickles and chutneys, chilli cider, chilli fudge, chilli chocolate, chilli cheese, chilli mustard, chilli relish, chilli plants, chilli seeds, chilli ceramics and chilli talks.
Plus bands, buskers, mariachi, chilli cook-off competition, chilli-eating competitions, falconry, beer tent, cider tent, gin bar, street food, cooking demonstrations, bouncy castles etc. Check out the website for details.
