What is PepperFest?

Abundance NC presents The Amazing Pepper Festival, Sunday, Sept 22, 2019 from 3-6 PM!  PepperFest is a celebration of sustainable agriculture, farmers, and the creativity of the Piedmont’s top chefs, brewers and artisans.

This outdoor event is held in NC’s cool late summer and hosts around 3000 folks who enjoy live music and revelry, learning and discovery – including a kid’s craft and fun zone – while filling up on delicious pepper-themed dishes made with delicious, locally grown sweet, hot and smoky NC peppers.

These chefs get super creative with these dishes, making everything from pepper ice cream to savory dishes and salsas, pepper gumbos and chili.  Abundance NC supplies them with  peppers from local NC farmers, supporting our local foodshed.  Come hungry! You’ll want to taste everything!

Along the way, you can purchase (cash bar) all types of micro-brews in which some of the brewers have added peppers to their ales!  There’s also local winery and spirits, local soda and coffee to choose from.

On top of that, there’s amazing local music and a kid zone so children have a blast while parents relax.  There are BEST DISH AWARDS and BEST BEER AWARDS.

Creativity is on display everywhere at PepperFest.  From the scrumptious concoctions dreamed up by our chefs and brewers, to the sweet melodies humming down from the bands onstage, to the complex flavors embedded in the peppers themselves, there’s a lot to make us proud to be from N.C.

Come out and experience it!
