Pop Up Chilli Fest
If you like it hot, this is the event for you as Merthyr hosts its annual awesome Pop Up Chilli Fest!
Taking place on Saturday 23rd June in Penderyn Square, there will be some 15+ chilli traders selling the best chilli products in the UK as well as loads of food to eat, drink and taste.
As always, there'll be some some old favourites and some exciting new producers!
This year's line-up includes Grim Reaper, Green Olive, Thunder Road, Naga Masala, Sonny, Chew Chew BBQ, Fallen Angel, Chilli of the Valley, Aunty Jee, Alabama Spices, Pimento, Pieroth, Little Grandma's Kitchen, Chilli Cheese Man, Sun Wah Oils and Chef Bernie.
New for this year is our Chilli Fest Chill Out Zone!
If it all gets a bit too hot for you, pop into the beautiful courtyard in Redhouse and enjoy some local ciders and beers, a cooling cocktail and then ... a big bowl of hot chilli!
We're also delighted to be welcoming back Duo Flex and their delightful steel pan music - who doesn't love the laid back sounds of the Caribbean?
The day closes with the eye-watering Clash of the Titans chilli eating contest for the fearless amongst you!
So will it be chilli heaven or chilli madness? Join us and find out!
Parking in all pay and display car parks is only £1 for the day so no need to rush about, just chill.
Merthyr Chilli Fiesta is organised by Chilli Fest UK with the support of The Big Heart of Merthyr Tydfil Business Improvement District.
