Cheltenham Street Chilli Festival
AboutThe Cheltenham Street Chilli Festival is returning for its third year and will be taking place on Saturday 1st June from 10am at Cambray Place.
The fiesta sees hundreds of people attend to try a selection of the country's best chilli based produce and buy a wide range of products from chilli cheese to live chilli plants.
This year's fiesta will also see the return of the 'Clash of the Titans', an extreme eating competition which isn't for the faint-hearted and for adults only. Starting from mild and flavourful the contestants work their way up the chilli heat list.
The event is being organised jointly by Chilli Fest UK and Cheltenham Business Improvement District (BID). Belinda Hunt, BID Operations Manager said: "This event is growing in popularity. Last year the winner, Shahina Waseem, came from London to take part and proved she could beat the heat earning her a place in the Clash of the Titans Hall of Fame."
This year will see the return of familiar products and a great selection of new products from a variety of family-run businesses. There is something for everyone.
Not to be missed highlights -
Clash of the Titans – a contest to see who can eat the hottest chilli. Open to adults only, contestants will be asked to sign a waiver and must bring picture ID with them. The winner joins the Clash of Titans hall of fame and gets the Cheltenham Clash of the Titans winner's t-shirt.
