With sections of Bulcock Street closed off for most of the day, we have room for 100 stalls, as well as a main stage for entertainment. We are looking for hot and spicy exhibitors and if you think you might fit the mould apply now for your stand.

The only criteria to be part of 'IGNITE' is that you must have something chilli related to offer to customers. This can be food, clothing, home wares, jewellery, memorabilia....... ANYTHING as long as it's chilli related!

We anticipate a huge demand for applications and will try and accommodate as many of these as possible. The festival is being hosted within a retail precinct many of whom will be getting into the spirit of celebrating the mighty chilli and will be very much a part of the festival.
