The Hottest Day Out In Dorset - The Great Dorset Chilli Festival - Wimborne St Giles, Dorset Food Festival
The 7th festival will be held on the first weekend of August 2017 and we are looking forward to another great day out for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. To be held with the kind permission of the Earl of Shaftesbury at St Giles Park, we’re lining up a glorious weekend of “chilli fiesta”, with stalls selling all things chilli, from pepper plants to cayenne condiments; seeds to ceramics; plus cooking demonstrations; talks on growing chillies; artisan food producers; music; spicy street food; local ice creams to cool the mouth; local beers to slake the thirst.

We have some of the most dedicated independent sauce manufacturers and retailers booked in to attend already 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 2017's 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!
