Excitement is hotting up for Chilli Fest at Holker!

The Holker Chilli Festival will take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September. Staged in the bustling Holker Courtyard it is now in its 4th year and this lively event is growing fast with over 4,000 visitors attending last year.

If variety is the spice of life, this event plans to have visitors spoilt for choice with a wide selection of growers and businesses attending from across the country, allowing shoppers to buy plants and seeds, as well as sample some of the finest food on offer from handmade curries to Italian street food – there’s even cooling iced-smoothies and handmade ice-cream to calm the palate!

Plenty of fiery fun is on offer with the annual chilli eating competition; watch the Scoviles soar as those with a strong stomach battle it out to try some of the world’s hottest chillies – taking place at 4pm each day with judge, Darth Naga.  Visitors will be entertained across the whole weekend with the Taste of Cairo belly dancers, live music and cookery demonstrations with tips on how to incorporate chilli flavours into your home-cooking plus Andy Jester will be entertaining the crowds with fire eating and stilt walking.

The Holker Chilli Fest this September is bound to be a fantastic day out for chilli enthusiasts, foodies and families alike.
