Three months to go to the first East Midlands Chilli Festival, which will be held on the 16th and 17th August at the Newark Showground NG24 2NY.
A great family event for chilli, non-chilli lovers, we already have an exciting array of stalls, including an impressive list of East Midlands and UK wide artisans, street food and drinks vendors . Something for everyone.
During the two days entertainment will consist of East Midlands bands, competitions and demonstrations, whilst on the Saturday evening there is a music festival.
For the chilli lover we have a chilli eating competition on both days and also on the Sunday a chilli cook-off – winners of which will receive £200 and entry into the National Cook-off finals.
It’s an event for children too, and for a nominal entry fee, activities such as theatre, a workshop, face painting and bouncy caste are free. There are also plenty of children’s competitions to keep them busy all day long.
Make a weekend of it… Newark Showground has pre-book camping and caravan facilities for individuals and rallies – Saturday only or Friday/Saturday options available.
As the East Midlands covers 6 counties, apart from free parking, we are also able to take coaches for those wishing to travel as groups. Please let us know beforehand so we can plan for your arrival.
