Welcome to West Dean’s Chilli Fiesta, now one of the UK’s largest and most popular chilli events.
Chilli Fiesta is an annual event in which West Dean dedicates itself to three days of chilli madness. We lay on the entertainment, food and lots for you to do and discover while you provide the enthusiasm for all things Hot! Hot! Hot!
‘For a fraction of the cost of Glastonbury or Glyndebourne, spice-loving punters can stay for three days of capsicum carnage’, Daily Telegraph.
This summer, you can make a weekend of it and camp in the fabulous grounds of the West Dean Estate, near Chichester. Full camping facilities are available throughout the weekend – with a limited number of pitches – so don’t take too long to decide – Book Now.
The campsite will be divided into family friendly, lively (for the night owls amongst us), stall holders, camper vans and caravans.
During the day there’ll be plenty to keep you entertained.
Food/Demo’s and Entertainment
Click on the relevent day below for the full Chilli Fiesta 2014 Programme:
You can watch food demos, sample some delicious delights and there will be plenty of food stalls around to ensure your hunger pangs are kept at bay as well as three bars on site offering a selection of beverages.
To give a real party atmosphere to the weekend there will be live music from midday until 11pm each day across two stages.
With over 140 stalls, many of them new for 2014, there’ll be great variety of quirky gifts on offer as well as chilli foods, chilli plants, seeds and produce.
We have a local media sponsor – Heart radio who will be promoting Chilli Fiesta on air across the south coast, bringing their giant deckchair and providing a relaxation zone of deckchairs.
A special Children’s area has been created which will include Vintage fun fair rides, Punch and Judy and face painting.(there’ll be a small charge for the fun fair rides).
And of course, don’t forget the stars of the show and the reason why West Dean has become a magnet for all things chilli.
Do visit the Glasshouses in the Walled Gardens which will be brimming with over 250 varieties of chilli.
Keep an eye out for updates and if you like what you see, book your tickets today.
