FOR THE KIDS
Our family-friendly festival offers activities forall ages. Kids can enjoy the animal nursery, guided pony rides, face-painting, inflatables, craft corner and simple sideshows. Because we don’t charge an admission fee for kids, our suppliers reserve the right to charge fees for their services.
Great live music is always peppered in between the chilli challenges on stage. Once again, we have the guitar maestro, Sean Mullen, gracing our stage, playing some hot guitar (and even some Joe Satriani tunes). He’ll also be joined by Sandra Beynon on vocals.
We strive to engage with as many local community groups as possible so they can be part of the fun.
We look for dancers, performing artists and anything else that will add value to the program.
Depending on the venue, dogs may be welcomed to the festival.
Relax in our chilli-themed bar and enjoy a selection of chilli cocktails, chilli beer, chilli sangria, as well as regular beverages.
We’ll even have some French Champagne on hand for the luxe lovers!
VIP CHAMPAGNE EXPERIENCE TICKETS
Enjoy VIP marquee seating, front row VIP challenge seating, French Champagne, grazing platter for two, a goodie bag and a chilli plant! Only 12 tickets available – book here.
Festival organisers like to support a local charity, so we will be on the lookout for a group to join us at the festival. If you would like to be our charity partner, please get in toucyh.
