The 8th festival will be held on the last weekend of July and will be another great weekend for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. Held with the kind permission of the Earl of Shaftesbury at St Giles Park, there will be 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.

Some of the most dedicated independent sauce manufacturers and retailers will be attending and some of the country’s best specialist chilli growers will showcase their plants and seeds to thousands of visitors at what is sure to be 2018’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 in at this fun, friendly festival!
