12th Annual Pepperfest Pepper Festival

Out and About


Abundance NC presents the 12th annual PepperFest -- a celebration of sustainable agriculture, local farmers, and the creativity of the Piedmont’s top chefs, brewers and artisans.

Enjoy live music and revelry, learning and discovery – including a kid’s craft and fun zone – while filling up on delicious pepper-themed dishes made with delicious, locally grown sweet, hot and smoky NC peppers.

Chefs compete for awards. Foodies taste all the different dishes made from peppers grown in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Children run wild, folks dance, laugh and enjoy the many different creations. A Pepper Queen and King are crowned, local businesses and non profits share their news and we all go home very happy.

This year's headliner is 8-Track Minds, NC’s finest 70’s dance party band to go along with the sweet and hot! For updates and additional information, check out http://pepperfestnc.org/. Get your ticket(s) here.
