    BrizChilli Fest is growing even bigger and better in 2019 with a great mix of returning and new stallholders to keep the range of products and food as interesting as we can. The stallholders are the backbone of BrizChilliFest and we strive to include new exhibitors as well as your favourites from 2019 coming back so you can stock up on your chilli goodies. We will be adding to the list below. They include market stalls, herb and chilli plants, great sauces and spices, mind-blowing hot sauce, beer, wine, desserts, meals, kids activities and much more.

    Check it out and make sure you make a note of who to visit when you come along to BrizChilli Festival 2019.

    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.
