8th Annual Pepper Festival in Briar Chapel on September 27th

Final preparations are underway for the 8th Annual Pepper Festival, which is taking place on Sunday (September 27, 2015) from 3-7pm at Briar Chapel's Great Meadow Park.

Although the festival had very humble beginnings, it is quickly becoming North Carolina's premiere local food festival of the season with 1200+ folks in attendance last year!

At the event, you can taste original recipes from 48 of North Carolina's best chefs, brewers & distillers, which are all incorporating Chatham County peppers in a competition for the best tasting sweet, smoky or spicy recipe.

The event will also feature a wide variety of activities, including great music with The Stacks, Brett Harris, and The Grand Shell Game. There will also be fun activities for the kids, as well as learning tents with mini-DIY workshops for the adults.

Tickets are $30 or $35 at the entrance, which includes all-access to food and entertainment. Kids under 12 get in free. Beverages are cash bar. You can purchase tickets online directly from the Abundance Foundation, or at the gate.

If you're a foodie, music and beer/wine lover, or just love all-things-pepper, I hope you'll join me for this family-friendly event in Briar Chapel! We'll even have a few high-performance homes open, in case you'd like to get here early and see our progress.
