This free event is taking place Saturday 18th April between 12 and 6pm. Enjoy all things chilli, with live cooking demonstrations showing you how to make the most of this spicy taste sensation. Take a stroll around a variety of chilli themed stalls, making selections from chilli plants, oils, condiments and even sweet treats.

There'll be live entertainment and roving performers too, and to make this a really kid friendly event, kids can enjoy getting their face painted between 2 and 4pm.
You can make a whole afternoon of it, by enjoying dinner at the Boat too. Here are the latest menus to enjoy. Don't forget the kids meal deal where you can choose any main from the kids menu for $10 and receive a soft serve ice cream with chocolate or strawberry topping and a drink too.
