Pick a Peck of Peppers at the Chapel Hill Pepper Festival
Celebrating the Piedmont region’s diverse farmland, talented chefs, hardworking farmers and general creativity, the 9th Annual Pepper Festival in Chapel Hill is a can’t-miss event.
Held in the Briar Chapel neighborhood, the festival draws a crowd of more than 1,300 to enjoy live music, a kids’ zone and, of course, lots of peppers. Local chefs use the festival’s star ingredient to craft a variety of dishes ranging from traditional and spicy to outside-the-box sweets for attendees to sample.
This year’s event takes place Sunday, Oct. 2, from 2 to 7 p.m. Learn more and purchase tickets at pepperfestnc.org.
