A celebration of all things chilli

Welcome to The Festival of Fire™, South Africa's Hottest Outdoor Chilli Festival, a celebration of all things spicy and delicious! The festival brings together chilli lovers from far and wide for a day of great food, entertainment and fun! 

At the heart of the festival is the "passion for chilli", a beloved ingredient that adds heat and flavour to so many favourite dishes and cuisines. 

Whether you prefer your chilli mild or extra hot, we have something for you, with a variety of chilli based products you can buy and take home, growing solutions to grow your own, and food trucks offering up their own unique take on this iconic ingredient. 

In addition to the delicious food and drinks, the festival also offers entertainment, demonstrations, and a variety of fun features such as the SA Chilli Eating Competition for those brave enough to compete. 

So, whether you're a local resident, a chilli connoisseur, or just someone looking for a fun day out, the festival is a great opportunity for you to mingle with the chilli community, support local businesses, and make new friends.

We look forward to sharing our love of chilli with you. So grab your friends and family, and get ready for a day of fun, food, and heat!
