The Annual Nowra Chilli & Chocolate Festival

The hottest date on the South Coast in winter!​​

The Annual Nowra Chilli & Chocolate festival, now in it’s 2nd year, was held on Sunday 30th July 2017. The festival is held at the Shoalhaven City Turf Club in Nowra, located just 2 hours south of Sydney on the picturesque South Coast of NSW.

The Nowra Chilli & Chocolate festival is only the second of it’s kind held in NSW, drawing in exhibitors from all over the East Coast of Australia. From chilli to chocolate, a combination of both and a range of other gourmet foods and lifestyle products, the festival is fun-filled food fest for the whole family. 

Our inaugural event in 2016 brought a huge turnout from locals and visitors alike, with the festival having over 2000 pass through the gates.  The 30+ store holders all had a successful day with many returning again this year to promote their wares. 2017 proved to be even bigger and better, with over 60 exhibitors, live entertainment, cooking demonstrations and special guests keeping our 7000+ visitors entertained. 

Next year’s festival will be held on Sunday 29th July 2018 – a date to put in your diary now. Stay tuned for updates and announcements, or to be a part of next year’s event. Visit our Contact Us page for details.
