Are you ready to put your taste buds to the test? Then get ready for the 3rd annual SA Chilli Eating Competition at this year's Festival of Fire™.

This competition is a test of endurance, insane heat and pain that only chilli can deliver. Contestants will face off to see who can last the longest eating a range of the hottest chilli known to mankind in a set of multiple rounds - with each round getting more extreme. 

The competition is open to anyone over 18, and who is brave enough to take on the challenge. 

So gather your friends and family, and come show us your chilli chomping skills! 

Buy a ticket now as limited spots are available!

The competition entry fee does not grant general access to the festival. To enter the festival grounds, please ensure you purchase a separate general access ticket.
