3rd & 4th August 2024


The Hottest Day Out In Dorset - The Great Dorset Chilli Festival 


To be held at the Stock Gaylard Estate, Sturminster Newton, DT10 2BG

We are delighted to be back at the Stock Gaylard Estate on 3rd & 4th August 2024. We'll have another great weekend for chilli enthusiasts, food lovers and families. We're lining up a glorious weekend of “chilli fiesta”, with stalls selling all things chilli, from pepper plants to cayenne condiments; seeds to ceramics; artisan food producers; music; chilli eating competitions; spicy street food; local ice creams to cool the mouth; local beers to slake the thirst.

We have some of the most dedicated independent chilli sauce manufacturers and retailers attending and some of the country’s best specialist chilli growers to showcase their plants and seeds to visitors at what will surely be 2024's 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. Come and join us at this fun, friendly festival!
