for Great Dorset Chilli Festival as your favourite British event.

We are looking forward to August and 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 August 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'll be inviting some of the most dedicated independent sauce manufacturers and retailers to let you try and buy; 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 the 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!

Tickets will be on sale in the summer from our website:
