Guildford

Date: 22nd & 23rd July 2017

Times: 10am – 5pm

We are delighted to announce that the amazing Cheese and Chilli Festival is coming back to Guildford in 2017 at Shalford Park! We had an amazing time in 2016 and can’t wait to return.

The event will again bring an amazing array of tastes, colours and experiences to town and is a ‘must go to event’. Come rain or shine, the event will be fantastic! The event in 2017 will see cheese and chillies from around the world brought to you along with amazing arts and craft stalls selling great and authentic products.

Whilst the event has an obvious focus on cheese and chilli, there will be something for everyone at the event and is a perfect family day out with FREE activities on offer for children and adults along with fun rides etc, treasure hunts, Falconry displays, magic shows, Punch & Judy etc.

If that wasn’t enough, there will be amazing Ales & Ciders all weekend from Downton Brewery and Worleys Cider! Plus this year we have Dorset Mobile Bar’s fantastic Inflatable Pub and bar serving a wide selection of cider, lager, wine, seasonal cocktails and soft drinks – so there will be something for all the family and you can cool your palate down in our pub garden!

To complement the party, with a dedicated stage area, live music from many local acts will be performed at the event. Please see our schedule for more details.

We are once again supporting the local Charity the Challengers whose mission is to provide truly inclusive, fun and safe places where all disabled children and young people can spend time with their friends. To offer a positive impact for families and the wider community.  Challengers-Final-Logos

Dogs: Dogs are very welcome at the shows, all we ask is that they are kept on leads. There are some dog trade stands on site so they won’t feel left out.
