Bowers, Pennsylvania becomes The Hottest Little Town in the USA when the Chile Pepper Festival, the largest pepper festival of its kind in the US, comes to town in September. Chefs from Meadowview Farm prepare everything peppery from Smoked Crabby Pepper Poppers to pepper-spray-level hot sauces made with chocolate habanero. Featuring the festival, USA Today suggested “just don’t forget a napkin for wiping your eyes, or a few extra dollars for some much-needed Italian ice.” Join the pepper eating contest, salsa contest, Chile pepper and heirloom tomato field excursions and pick your own.
Held annually the second Friday & Saturday of September
September 7th & 8th 2018
