Newtown Chilli Festival

A celebration of face-melting tastiness.

On June 11, things are getting hot at The Bank Hotel. Tongue-tinglingly hot. Face-meltingly hot. Homer Simpson running, screaming and waving his hands around hot. That's what happens when you spice up your Sunday with a chilli festival, after all.

Adding some zest to the long weekend and to Sydney in general, the King Street pub is hosting the inaugural Newtown Chilli Festival from midday. There'll be  a chilli brew off, chilli-inspired cocktails and chilli barbecue specials — aka chilli galore. And yes, there'll definitely be enough hot hot heat to help you turn several different shades.

Of course, it wouldn't be a chilli festival without the spiciest event of them all: a chilli-eating competition. If you're currently thinking "I can consume anything!", there's vouchers, hot sauce and beer on offer in your tastebuds emerge victorious. Our tip, and we think you'll need it: remember that milk is a chilli-lover's best friend.
