Red Hot Chilli Festival
With chilli products to fill your cupboard, chilli dishes to feast on and chilli-eating competitions.
Fortitude Valley venue The Sound Garden shares a name with a well-known band. On Sunday, January 17, it's hosting a festival with a moniker that riffs on another, too. There are no prizes for guessing what's on offer at the Red Hot Chilli Festival, but prepare for a spicy day — complete with chilli products to fill your cupboard, chilli dishes to feast on and chilli-eating competitions.
From 12pm, a range of stalls will be setting up shop at the Brunswick Street site. Hot sauces, jams, relish, chutneys, nuts and salts will all be on offer, as will chilli plants to buy and take home with you. Or, you can opt for something with a bit of kick from The Sound Garden's food menu. If you don't like some heat with each bite, obviously this shindig isn't for you.
If you can't get enough spice, however, then you might also want to test your tastebuds at a hot wing eating or chilli pod munching contest.
Heading along won't cost you a thing, but you do need to register in advance.
