The 15th Annual PepperFest

A flyer promoting the 15th Annual Pepper Festival, featuring illustrations of peppers.

The 15th Annual PepperFest

PepperFest is a celebration of regenerative agriculture, local farmers, and the creativity of the Piedmont’s top chefs and beverage artisans. The event will be held outside @ The Plant, a 16-acre eco-industrial park of likeminded businesses and surrounded by nature on occupied Tuscarora land.

We will host around 1,000 folks who enjoy vibrant connection, live music and filling up on delicious pepper-themed dishes and beverages made with locally grown sweet, hot and smoky NC peppers. Chefs & Beverage makers compete for awards. Foodies taste all the different dishes made from peppers grown in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Children run wild, folks dance, laugh and enjoy the many different creations. Pepper awards are crowned, local businesses and non-profits share their offering and we all go home very happy, full & spicy!

We will have live music with our opener, The RT's, followed by an acrobatic Imagine Circus performance, and ending with a performance by ¡Tumbao!, a high-energy Latin Fusion band that creates a sound reflecting the many flavors of Latin America. Other features of the day include an artistic educational and cultural walkthrough, a 21+ lounge, a kid’s zone with a cooking class and pepper arts and crafts by Circle City Supper Club, and a small farmers’ market.
