Bristol heats up as the Bristol PepperFest returns Saturday, September 23rd, from 11 AM – 4 PM. Located on 6th Street in Downtown Bristol, this free event, coordinated by Believe in Bristol, will feature culinary demonstrations, hot pepper plant sales, sauces, food trucks and other “spicy” vendors, a beer garden, and live music.
Leading up to Bristol PepperFest, visitors downtown will have a chance to win prizes by participating in the Bristol PepperFest Spicy Scavenger Hunt, hosted on the GooseChase app. This digital scavenger hunt will have participants hunting down a variety of spicy menu items available from Downtown Bristol restaurants and bars and snapping a selfie at each stop. To play, individuals can download the GooseChase app, login or create an account, search for "Bristol PepperFest Spicy Scavenger Hunt", or code 8J881V and start collecting!
Also returning this year, Quaker Steak & Lube presents their Triple Atomic Wing Challenge, giving eight contestants the opportunity to win prizes if they are the first to finish their plate of extreme wings. Only Burns Twice Chili Peppers will also have a deck of 10 ultra-hot peppers for another eight contestants to sweat during the Ultimate “Beat the Heat” Pepper Eating Competition. Pre-registration is currently open for both eating competitions.

Bristol PepperFest will also include a cornhole tournament fundraiser for Believe in Bristol. Registration for the double elimination tournament is a minimum donation of $25 per team.
