Briz Chilli Fest Halloween

Chillogan Chilli and Rum Festival 2024

Sunday 2nd June, 2024

11am to 7pm

What a cracker of an event it was!

Thanks to all who supported and to all our vendors who came along to show off their delicious wares, participate in the challenges and generally enjoy the beautiful weather.

We will soon announce the amount raised for RSL Springwood Tri-Services Sub-Branch, but can already announce that the sum of $9,500 was raised at our AfterBurn Bar, to help fill the coffers of Vietnam Vets MC, who do such great work in the community!

Well done to the organisers for facilitating such a generous donation under a Community Liquor Permit.  That’s real community spirit!

Gallery will be updated soon!
