Logan’s hottest ticket is Chillogan Lite 2020

Date Published: 21/07/2020

1500 lucky people will get to enjoy one of the few festivals of 2020 as Beenleigh Town Square comes alive on Saturday 5th December.

From 2pm to 9pm, organisers are planning all manner of hot and spicy fun for Logan families and chilli-heads from all over!

Attendance will be capped to 1000 patrons at any one time in the square, so only 1500 tickets will be sold in advance to ensure this is managed according to Covid-Safe Regulations.

The planned two day Chillogan Chilli Festival at the beautiful Logan River Parklands had to be trimmed down due to border closures and Covid restrictions, but organisers have since decided to present a more manageable one day festival – CHILLOGAN LITE!

All the usual fun things will be there – Hellfire Alley, Afterburn Bar, Live Music, Dancers, Chilli Challenges, Chilli Plants, Pony Rides, Animal Nursery, Viking Breed Motorcycle Display, Brisbane Commodore Car Club, Hot Rod, plus of course a nice selection of freshly prepared chilli food to tempt those taste buds – and of course some not to hot food as well.

“We are excited to bring some positivity and fun to the Logan people who have been hit hard by all manner of restrictions and bad publicity, ” said organiser, Scarlett Habanero.

“So many great people live in this area, families, hard- working people who really appreciate the work that goes into putting a festival together.  I am happy to put this on for them and hope they support me as I’m just another business which has lost their livelihood too, ” she said.

The Beenleigh Town Square is a beautiful area purpose-built for community events and it’s nice to be able to come back to our original festival site where in 2018 we launched Chillogan – Logan’s own chilli festival.

It’ll be summer and the warm evenings will lend themselves to a nice cold beer or cocktail from the Afterburn Bar, and the kids can splash around in the water feature to keep cool, as well as enjoying the Kidz Zone.

“I’m trying to include as many local businesses as possible, so please contact me if you would like to participate in any way; lots of discounts for locals,” said Ms Habanero.

“I doubt that even rain will keep people away from a rare event in this very trying year,” she said.
