Brisbane's only family-friendly chilli festival

Briz Chilli Fest 2018 is warming up winter in Bulimba this June. Brisbane's first family-friendly chilli festival promises a jam-packed day out, full of hot and spicy fun for all ages!

Come and join in the festivities at Bulimba Golf Club and enjoy delicious hot food favourites, interactive workshops, live entertainment, fun competitions, kids activities and so much more!

The festival is mindful of initiatives to reduce plastic consumption and will demonstrate this by the following measures:

  • no plastic straws

  • no styrofoam food containers

  • no coffee cup lids

  • no single-use plastic bags

  • segregated waste disposal

  • only disposable plastic where plastic is unavoidable

    So, remember to bring your own re-usable bags to put your goodies in.


    As the golf course has ample grass for seating, feel free to bring your own comfy chair and rug and really settle in for a great day out.

    It kicks off at 10am and throughout the day, families can enjoy:

  • A selection of Festival Food by Bulimba's own La Quinta Restaurant! Plus Bulimba Golf Club chef's selection of burgers and hot dog offerings, including vegetarian options. There is sure to be something for everyone and nothing is priced over $12.00!

  • Fabulous Chilli Cocktails and Revel Brewing Co, Bulimba's very own brewery, will be showcasing their range of brews, including a very special 'chilli brew' just for BrizChilli Fest!

  • Live music by two hot bands - the fabulous six-piece Eddie Gazani band and Canta La Tumba, who'll bring the playful vibe of the Havana Bar and Cafe scene to the festival. Plus Sean Mullen Guitar playing great Louisiana Blues.

  • Get moving and join in with Latin Dance Club 5050 as they firstly show you how the pros do it, then lead you in some interactive salsa lessons to the tunes of the band.

  • For the kids, there will be a "face-off" with the Nacho Fever Wrestlers, two jumping castles, craft activities and donkey rides.

  • Competitions galore with Chilli Cook-Off, Chilli Dog Competition, La Quinta Chilli Wings Competition, Sip & Shout and Fancy Dress with adult and child categories!
