Chilli Fest

The first ever Wiltshire Chilli Fest with Extra Cheese was held in Westbury town centre on Saturday 25th September 2021, from 1pm to 7pm.

Were you one of the thousands at Wiltshire Chilli Fest this weekend? Samba, chilli eating and stalls from around the country came into Westbury alongside thousands of revellers. A huge THANK YOU to everyone that came and made it one to remember. Viva Westbury!!!

This Westbury Town Council Event was run in association with Westbury Festival and sponsored by Daykin Estates.

The family event included live music, a chilli eating competition, chilli market and kids zone, kindly supported by the UK’s leading manufacturer of paper bags, the Paper Bag Co.

Jamba de Samba created a fiesta atmosphere, while it was full cheese ahead with local favourite Rock n Roll band The Cley Hill Stompers bringing some classics to the Westbury Festival Stage.

The Chilli Plant competition was judged by the experts at Wiltshire Chilli Farm, who provided the special Loco Chilli seeds for the competitors. The brilliant Best of Your Pottery provided the trophies for this contest and the hugely anticipated inaugural Chilli Eating Competition.

The Wiltshire Chilli Eating Contest was hosted by the UK Chilli Queen and run by Hot Pod Chilli Products.

The market itself was through the High Street and featured more than 20 chilli-based stalls, including delicious hot food and a sangria bar.

Children were catered for, with a full circus workshop running all day, as well as face painting, and story tent for the really little ones. All children’s activities are absolutely free.

The Wiltshire Chilli Fest with Extra Cheese brought the region’s hottest chilli fanatics together for a day of great food and music.

Thank you for your support.
