The annual Birmingham Chilli Festival will be returning to Brindleyplace on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th July and is set to be hotter than ever!
Sponsored by Aston Manor Cider, this free family event will feature a variety of stalls selling chilli-inspired food, along with live music and cookery demonstrations from Brindleyplace restaurants – not to mention some hot limbo and salsa performances!
The most exciting hour of the Birmingham Chilli Festival, is the popular chilli eating competition, which will see 15 brave people compete against each other to see who can eat the hottest chilli. The highly-competitive competition will take place on Saturday 20th July at 3.30pm and the winner will receive complimentary drinks at Pitcher and Piano, a meal at Piccolino and an overnight stay for two with bed and breakfast at Hilton Garden Inn.
