Great Dorset Chilli Festival

Stock Gaylard, Kings Stag, Sturminster Newton

We're back with a new venue: Stock Gaylard, Sturminster Newton

What is a chilli festival?  If you've been before you'll know that we are 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, we know we have to look after everyone. But if you're coming for the chilli, we'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.

“It's brilliantly run and very clean and family friendly. Recommend to all our friends. Not even a fan of chilli !”
