Waddesdon Manor Chilli Fest 2021, UK
September 3, 2021 - September 5, 2021
The Waddesdon Manor Chilli Fest promises to be the hottest event of the summer. The manor house built for the Baron de Rothschild in the 1870s to entertain guests and exhibit his works of art, will be turned into a chilli festival for one weekend in late August.
Some of the country’s most loved independent suppliers will descend upon the 19th Century manor house for a weekend of spicy feasting with artisan producers, live music, and fun for the family, as well as salsa lessons. Take the opportunity to explore the house and wander around the wonderful gardens, as entrance is free with a Waddesdon Manor Chilli Fest ticket.
Waddesdon Manor Chilli Fest Stallholders
More than 70 stallholders will sell everything to do with the chilli, from cakes to cheese and chutneys to oils. These included beer, cider and lager from Fallen Angel Brewery, meat from Supreme Sausages and The Giggly Pig Company, cheese and deli from Steve’s Cheese and The Oxford DelHi. Alternatively, try Grim Reaper Foods, and spirits from Bucks Brothers Gin and Fen Spirits.
In addition to this, there will be a number of catering stalls from Funky Elephant to Crayfish Capers, as well as drink stalls offering Hitchcox Cider and Malt the Brewery.
