PepperFest 2020

Tickets HERE! 

Traditionally, this is a 3,000 person event. This year the world is different and so is PepperFest.

A celebration of sustainable agriculture, farmers and the creativity of the Piedmont’s top chefs. We will be having a picnic and farmers’ market styled event with social distancing precautions.

Tickets are limited to 100 high-end baskets with mason jars full of carefully curated pepper-themed dishes. Dishes that you can enjoy long after the event is over.

There will be live music by CERTAIN SEAS. We are looking forward to a scaled down celebration of our cherished locally grown sweet, hot and smoky NC peppers.

Farmer Registration

PepperFest has grown by leaps and bounds since its humble beginnings in 2008 as a taste test for a local organic farmer’s pepper breeding program, to today’s serious celebration of the abundance of local food in the Piedmont of North Carolina.

“…We have barely disembarked into life…we’ve only just now been born, let’s not fill our mouths with so many uncertain names, with so many sad labels, with so many pompous letters, with so much yours and mine, with so much signing of papers. I intend to confuse things, to unite them, make them new-born intermingle them, undress them, until the light of the world has the unity of the ocean, a generous wholeness, a fragrance alive and crackling.”
― Pablo Neruda
