The Great Dorset Chilli Festival is the hottest day out in Dorset!
Wimborne St Giles, Dorset
The Great Dorset Chilli Festival sitemap was commissioned to help celebrate a great day out for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. Held with the kind permission of the Earl of Shaftesbury at St Giles Park, it’s 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.
With some of the most dedicated independent sauce manufacturers and retailers and some of the country’s best specialist chilli growers to showcase their plants and seeds to thousands of visitors it 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.
“Tanya followed the brief diligently and produced a beautiful map. I can’t stop looking at it!”
