Holker Chilli Fest promises Heat, Fun & Flavour....

This hotly anticipated two day festival is all about celebrating the heat, fun and flavour of one of the world’s best loved ingredients - the MIGHTY chilli pepper.



Event Date:

13th & 14th September 2014

Framed by the Lakeland fells, the beautiful grounds of the venue, Holker Hall, are set to come alive with music, dancing, stalls, magic and chillies…

Visitors can learn the Salsa with our Salsa Spirit Dancers, or sit back and enjoy the sounds of musicians playing the Spanish guitar.  Keen cooks can pick up tips on how to incorporate chilli flavours into home-cooking with demonstrations from our Chefs in the Courtyard Café.  In addition to this, die-hard chilli lovers can enter a chilli eating competition hosted daily by famous chilli expert ‘Darth Naga’. Magic displays and face painting activities will take place throughout the weekend to keep children entertained.

Browse the spice-scented Market stalls, featuring lots of delicious take home goodies, specialist chilli produce and quirky gifts, including home-made preserves, aromatic oils, curry pastes and powders, and handmade solid hardwood chopping boards.

Plus there’ll be plenty to eat from every cuisine; Chilli Chicken Burgers, Chilli Beef & Merguez Sausages from Lakeland Picnic, a traditional Hog Roast and BBQ from Bowland Pork, Chicken & Beef Curry from Mr Vikki’s, salt & pepper & chilli chips and sweet chilli chicken noodles from Che Ooy and Sugar and Cinnamon Churros from Deli Churros to name just a few!
