The festival will be gold coin entry and support local farmers via Buy A Bale.

The festival is truly set to bring the heat, with international food trucks on-site to complement a chilli cornucopia of chilli chocolate, sauces of all spice levels, condiments, jerky, jams, salami, art and novelties.

Meanwhile, should the chilli-averse somehow stumble into the festival, the Hornets Cafe will be serving a non-chilli menu inside the club.

The day can be enjoyed by all in the family, with kids entertainment on throughout the day with sand crafts, face painting, pony rides and games.
