28–29 July 2018
One of the hottest days out in Dorset, The Great Dorset Chilli Festival returns to Wimborne St Giles, Dorset Food Festival.
Held on the last weekend of July 2018, the festival is looking forward to another great weekend for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. Held with the kind permission of the Earl of Shaftesbury at St Giles Park, the ‘chilli fiesta’ will host stalls selling all things chilli, from pepper plants to cayenne condiments, seeds to ceramics. There will also be cooking demonstrations, talks on growing chillies, artisan food producers, music, spicy street food, local ice creams to cool the mouth and local beers to slake the thirst.
The festival will see some of the most dedicated independent sauce manufacturers and retailers, as well as some of the country’s best specialist chilli growers, showcasing their plants and seeds. 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.
