The renewed festival takes place at a brand new location at the area of Tullikamari, Pakkahuone and Klubi.
Besides chili this year’s themes are barbeque, garlic and beer. The festival offers a broad selection of exhibitors and food as well as grilling, barbeque competitions, a Hot Wings -challenge and different instructional kitchens. Along with delicious food the festival-goer can also enjoy cool beverages: Pakkahuone will have an atmospheric microbrewery area where one can enjoy more rare craft beers. As tradition has it the festival will culminate in the World Chili Eating Championship Contest.
