Thursday 6th August, 2020.

It is with great sadness that organisers have chosen to cancel the 2020 Briz Chilli Fest.

The ongoing uncertainty around borders, the constant threat of lockdowns, and the latest developments with hotspots resulting in changing social-distancing restrictions mean we cannot guarantee the festival experience we like to create for our visitors.

We had hoped for a two-day festival at Waterfront Park, however, this was not approved by the Brisbane City Council, so it’s even harder to produce a Covid-friendly event which at the same time delivers as a festival should.

We look forward to more event-friendly 2021 and wish all of our suppliers, vendors, performers and chilli-heads the very best until then.

Keep an eye out for Gold Coast Cheese Chilli and Chocolate Festival, planned for Saturday 5th December at Paradise Country Parklands at Nerang.  We might be lucky enough to get this one off the ground!
