Sawtell Chilli Festival

Event dates to be confirmed: July 2019

One of the hottest events on the Coffs Coast events calendar.

Even though it's the middle of a Coffs Coast (mild) winter, the event is guaranteed to turn up the heat a few notches. Each year, the popular festival attracts thousands of people to the pretty seaside village, keen to sample the wide range of chilli-related foods and products, take part in fun activities and competitions and be entertained by live music, dancing, cooking and other performances.

The festival is an incredibly fun day out for the whole family. There will be street performances, rides for the kids, live music and dancing and, of course, the by now very famous annual Chilli Eating Competition!

Less fiery but equally fun competitions you can take part in are the Spanish/Mexican style Fancy Dress Competition and the Chilli-themed Hat Parade.
