Winchester Cheese and Chilli Festival


The Cheese and Chilli Festival is a family show offering something for everyone. There are approximately 100 trade stands selling cheese and chilli associated products as well as craft and retail goods. Entertainments include Crazy Golf, Human Sized Table Football, Falconry displays, Punch & Judy, Balloon modelling, Magic Shows, a Treasure Hunt, free garden games, children fun rides and inflatables, live music from local bands, cooking demonstrations and talks from well known guests including Chilli Olly, a crowd pleasing chilli eating competition, a chilli sauce taste competition judged by you in the Taste Tent and the Man v Food challenge.

There is plenty to eat and drink with authentic local food stalls and dedicated bars from the likes of Worley's Cider, Downton Brewery and the famous inflatable pub! 

The venue boasts a great space and is a beautiful setting which helps make the atmosphere amazing. The festival will again see more cheese and chillies on offer from around the world than previous years.

To complement the party, with a dedicated stage area, live music from many local acts will be performed at the event. Please see the schedule for notification of the bands playing at times etc.

Dogs are very welcome at the show, all we asks is that they are kept on leads and you pick up any waste.
