@Chilli_Farmer Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival 10th Sept

The annual Chilli Festival will taking place on September 10th 2011 will be their third festival and its shaping up to be the best yet! Sadly I wont be able to make this one but have already pencilled it in for next year! 

This mini festival looks a delight and different from others focusing on families and the whole day experience not just endless chilli stores but more about the farm and the chilli itself. Instead you get some carefully selected chili stalls listed below.

There will be a chile growers competition, demonstrations on sauce making and smoking using a Bradley Smoker as well as larger scale smoking using our soon to be constructed smoke house!
Food and drink will will be available all day with a chilli themed BBQ running. The farm shop opening its doors for chilli related cuisine in the evening, and a cider influenced bar being open from midday through till close.

Back by popular demand too is the bouncy castles slides, and the Kangaroo boxing suits alongside 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 daytime event - which starts at midday - will have a small entrance fee, whilst the evening event is tickets only and this has been sold out due to popular demand! The evening will be slightly less chilli related, although our bands will keep the crowds hot hot hot with their funky sounds!
