Great Dorset Chilli Festival
Bringing the exciting world of chillies to the beautiful surroundings of Dorset for the third year, the Dorset Chilli Festival is a great day out for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. Held with the kind permission of the Earl of Shaftesbury at St Giles Park, we’ve lined up a glorious August weekend of “chilli fiesta”, with stalls selling all things chilli, from pepper plants to cayenne condiments; seeds to ceramics; plus cooking demonstrations; artisan food producers; music spicy street food; local ice creams to cool the mouth; local beers to slake the thirst.
We’ve invited some of the most dedicated independent sauce manufacturers and retailers to let you try and buy; and some of the country’s best specialist chilli growers to showcase their plants and seeds to thousands of visitors at what is sure to be this years’ hottest event in Dorset. The development of the Dorset Naga, at one time reputed to be the world’s hottest chilli, has really put Dorset on the map for chilli enthusiasts. Come and join us at this fun, friendly festival!
