Mark Your Calendars, Spicy Food Festivals This Fall

Spicy Food Festivals

I love the Fall! Time to get the sweaters and light jackets from storage, watch the changing leaves, go apple and pumpkin picking, start watching Football every weekend, and attend a couple of food festivals. This past summer was brutal so definitely welcoming the cooler temperatures and looking forward to checking out what’s new at the food fests! Here are a few that are coming up in the next month or so.

Easton Farmers’ Market – Chile Pepper Festival
Saturday, September 22nd
Easton, PA

Brooklyn Botanic Garden – Chile Pepper Fiesta
Saturday, September 29th, 11am-6pm
Brooklyn, NY

Wish I could make the Botanic Garden’s festival but will be in Argentina & Chile during that time, maybe I’ll find some great spicy food in Argentina or Chile? I mean, a country with a name like Chile should have some serious heat so we’ll see. 🙂

Food Network’s Wine & Food Festival
Thursday – Sunday, October 11th-14th
New York, NY

The Food Network’s festival is an entire weekend so make sure you check out their events page. One that I’m definitely attending is the Spice event on the 14th at Spice Market. There will be lots of chilies and spices being passed around at that event!

Feast of San Gennaro
Now thru Sunday, 23rd
Little Italy, NYC

How did I forget the San Gennaro food festival?! Probably because it’s not a spicy food event but there will be spicy food finds, you can bet on that!

Most of the above are in the NJ, PA and NYC area so if you’re nearby these are definitely a few to attend. Would also be great to know what’s happening in your neck of the woods. What food festival are you looking forward to this Fall? Share a few in the comments, would love to hear about them!


  1. I hope I am not too busy next weekend to check our the chili pepper fiesta. I have always wanted to go to the Food and Wine festival. It was kind of pricey. Hmm, maybe I will just go this year.

    • Yeah I’m bummed that I can’t make it again this year to BK. Also check livingsocial or goldstar, I found half price specials for the wine & food fest! I always thought they were too expensive too.
