This year is ramping up to be the best one yet and with plenty of fantastic stallholders returning and a number of exciting new additions, expect an abundance of sumptuous food, lively music and sensational entertainment to suit every age. With free entry for kids under 14, the bigger-than-Ben-Hur Free KidZone is definitely going to get a workout!
Hot Sauce Alley is bound to be hit again this year, with many new sauces, relishes and rubs being released at the festival, while the popular Stinger Wing Challenge will no doubt see plenty of victims willing to set their mouths on fire (metaphorically speaking, of course!) for fame and glory. There will also be the Captain Chilli competition for those wishing to risk all to be the supreme chilli eater.
There’ll be plenty of mouth-watering treats in the Food Court, or for something different try the World’s Hottest Dim Sims or Hot Chocolate - yikes! Check out the Cooking Stage where chefs and cooks will share their expertise, tips, tricks and favourite recipes. Mexican wrestlers will be demonstrating their incredible craft and schmoozing with the crowds, and there’ll be vendors-a-plenty spruiking their glorious wares! In other words, there’s a quite a bit happening!
All this is happening ten minutes into the stunning Yarra Valley from Lilydale.
