West Dean’s Chilli Fiesta is now one of the UK’s largest and most popular Chilli Events in the UK.
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.
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.
The campsite will be divided into family friendly, lively (for the night owls amongst us), stall holders, camper vans and caravans.
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, there’ll be great variety of quirky gifts on offer as well as chilli foods, chilli plants, seeds and produce.
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 and don’t forget to visit the Glasshouses in the Walled Gardens which will be brimming with over 250 varieties of chilli.
