Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival
This will be our third festival, and with the experience gained from the previous events we are hoping to put on a event that will be even better than before!
The one day festival will be bigger this year, although the old favourites such as the Chilli Eating Competition and the Chilli Tasting Table will be very much part of it. On top of this the chilli farm will of course be open to visit, which this year includes our sponsored show tunnel - courtesy of Simpson Seeds.
There will also be a chilli growers competition where enthusiasts will be encouraged to enter their fruits into a variety of catagories, to include funniest looking chilli and sexiest chilli! There will be demonstrations on sauce making as well as a demo on smoking, which will be based around small scale smoking using a Bradley Smoker as well as larger scale smoking using our soon to be constructed smoke house!
Food and drink will play a major role, with a chilli themed BBQ running throughout the day, the farm shop opening its doors for chilli related cuisene in the evening, and a cider influenced bar being open from midday through till close.
The festival is very much aimed at famillies and as such we will once again have a range of bouncy castles, and slides, as well as the Kangaroo boxing suits and traditional farmyard fun and games.
Pony rides and tractor rides will be taking place and of course everyone is encouraged to walk around the farm taking in the amazing scenery and far-reaching views.
The evening will be slightly less chilli related, although our bands will keep you hot hot hot with their funky sounds!
The daytime event - which starts at midday - will have a small entrance fee, whilst the evening event is tickets only.
