Chilliville – Townsville’s first chilli festival is full steam ahead.

Great news for the northern region as a brand new festival is added to the event landscape in 2021.

Organisers have finalised plans for a one day event on Sunday 12th September at The Townsville Showgrounds from 10am to 8pm.

The Ville Resort-Casino is on board as our Accommodation Sponsor and will be offering some great packages to entice some short stays in this beautiful part of the world.

We’re all about engaging with community groups and local performers and we’re excited to announce that the CityStudio Cheer and Dance School will be there on the day to perform some great dance pieces, but also to cheer on our brave and crazy chilli challengers throughout the day.

Valhalla Strength Training will be hosting the awesome Tyre Flip Challenge and demonstrating the fruits of their labour, as well as encouraging audience members to take them on!

We will be joined by Townsville Veteran Vintage and Historic Motor Club to show off their beautiful vehicles.

Viking Breed Social MotorCycle Club will be supporting our charity fundraising efforts by conducting their “Viking for a Day” Pillion Auction during the afternoon.

Kirwan Scouts are joining us to help keep the festival site clean and tidy throughout the day, and Scout Recycling Centres will benefit from container refunds (cans and glass bottles from the bar) to help raise more money.
