Third Annual Newtown Chillifest

A celebration of face-melting tastiness.

On Sunday, June 9, 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 its third annual Newtown Chilli Festival from midday. There'll be beers — from local brewers Young Henrys, 4 Pines, Sauce Brewing and more — heaps of homemade chilli sauce 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 are vouchers, hot sauce and beer on offer if your tastebuds emerge victorious. To enter you'll need to submit a short statement on why you love chilli — you'll find all the details here. Our tip, and we think you'll need it: remember that milk is a chilli-lover's best friend.

Newtown Chilli Fest runs from midday–7pm.
