It’s time again for one of the hottest events in the Triangle – the Pittsboro Pepper Festival, on Sunday, Oct. 14, in Chapel Hill.
Who’s invited: Everyone interested in local food and sustainable agriculture and having fun and eating in Central NC.
Who’s going to entertain you: Abundance Foundation and Piedmont Biofarm‘s seed-saving research division, plus chefs, brewers, food artisans, nonprofits focusing on sustainability, sponsors, musicians, bubble blowers, acrobats and a veggie circus!
When: Sunday, October 14, 3 to 7 p.m.
Where: Briar Chapel’s Park (16 Windy Knoll Circle, Chapel Hill, NC)
What: A celebration of the Piedmont’s sustainable agriculture, local food, our community and all things pepper!
Why? This began five years ago when Farmer Doug Jones needed data about his 100-plus varieties of peppers that he grows. Forty friends and family came by to taste and submit data. It turned into quite the festival, and now we’re ALL invited!
