Challock Chilli Fest 2017
7 & 8 October 2017, 10.30 am – 4pm daily
There are Chilli Festivals and there are Chilli Festivals, and we’ve been to more than one or two where we’ve struggled to find a fresh Chilli – let alone a Chilli Plant! At Victoriana our Chilli Fest is just a little bit different – it’s all about the Chilli!
This year we will have over 180 different varieties of chillies and peppers to taste, complemented by many stalls selling sauces, chutneys, and jams, as well as foods to eat on the day from local Game to Indian Street Food to Italian Favourites cooked in a wood fired oven. And to drink everything from Chilli Beer to Chilli Bellinis! Couple that with a range of arts and craft stalls (who all have to sell at least one Chilli-themed item) and you have the perfect event for the lover of all things Chilli. We think it’s safe to say that we go ‘Chilli Mad’ for the weekend!
Entry to our Chilli Fest is just £2.50 (free for children) with £1.00 of every entry fee being donated to The Mission For Seafarers. Our expert growers (and eaters!) are on hand to offer advice and information about all the varieties we have grown and lead you through a tasting experience. And all those 180 varieties of Chilli fruits will be available to purchase for the ultimate Pick Your Own! Additionally we will have a large range of mature fruiting plants available to purchase. More information can be found at Challock Chilli Fest!
