What people said about the 2018 festival!

Had a great day. Great variety of foods and of course chilli. -- Paul Reid.

Such a fun day!!! So many delicious chilli sauces, yummy food and coffee! Had a ball :) look forward to next year -- Allie Heather

Fantastic day, very short lines, and a good lineup. Wish there had been a few more food stalls but understandable as this was a chilli festival, not a chilli food festival. Great day out! -- Maria Millington

Great day having a blast with fellow chilli lovers, good vibe, great music and lots to choose from, we look forward to coming again next year. Mark Saint -- The Chilli Effect

Was a fantastic day out at Briz Chilli Fest. Great atmosphere, I loved the band so much! A lot of chilli product choices. Great organisation! 5 Star for sure! -- Eve White, Red Oriental.
