There is something special happening on a small Island just off the South Coast of the UK, a Chilli Fiesta of course! For those who are trying to decide whether to go to the 1st Isle of Wight Chilli Fiesta, there are a number of very good reasons to come along these are:

  • It’s being held on the beautiful Isle of Wight
  • It’s raising money for a very worthwhile charity
  • It will involve Chillies
  • It will involve more Chillies!
  • It will involve Chillies ( did I mention that?)

The event, based at the Smallbrook Stadium on the outskirts of Ryde, will feature the cream of the chilli product industry from across the UK.

The spicy stalls will be offering a huge range of sauces, chutneys, chilli jams, chilli plants, fresh chillies, spices and all kinds of chilli related goods, as well as local produce, superb food, thrilling entertainment and exciting sideshows for kids and adults.

The fiesta will also play host to the 1st Isle of Wight Chilli Cook-off, the ever popular Chilli eating competition, big screen entertainment and much much more.

Why not make the Chilli Fiesta part of an extended stay on the island? From historic sites to natural delights, the Isle of Wight is a unique holiday destination and has something for everyone.

The Isle of Wight Chilli Fiesta is thrilled to be able to offer special ferry rates for visitors travelling to the island between 24-30 July 2013, from Portsmouth-Fishbourne or  Lymington-Yarmouth, if travelling by car, or from Portsmouth Harbour-Ryde Pier Head by foot passenger on the catamaran.

Buy your Fiesta tickets at and you will be sent a discount code for you to use on – A car with up to 5 passengers will cost just £55 return, compared to the usual £90 and foot passengers will only pay just £10 instead of £18.

This inaugural event will be raising money for the “Beaulieu Respite”, which is a local charity on the island that helps children with severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviours and complex health needs, some of which are life limiting.

Its going to be amazing!

The organisers have done a fantastic job in making this a full on, family event over the whole weekend. Lots to do, lots of fun and some great people will be there.
Simply cannot wait for this event.

One of the 2 or 3 must go to festivals this year!
