Welcome to the Herb and Chilli Festival, 2024.

Spice things up and join us for our 12th Herb & Chilli Festival!

2023 and 2022 were great events with record crowds igniting their taste buds at The Herb & Chilli Festival. In 2024 you can explore over 80 stalls offering a wide range of spicy chilli and other great products. Sample tongue-tingling sauces, rubs, and marinades, and discover tantalizing drinks that will add an extra kick to your palate.

We are expecting a really busy year with many people coming to try yummy food, drinks, listen to music or watch our chilli fanatics test their taste buds.

Delight in a variety of delectable dishes from our mouthwatering vendors, and refresh yourself with locally crafted beverages. Families are welcome, and children under 14 can enter for free with any paying adult. Travel to the festival hassle-free with our convenient Chilli Express shuttle bus service, available from Lilydale train station.  Buy tickets at TryBooking when you buy event tickets – or after if you wish!

Harmaniax will be our feature band. They bring the unique sound of Louisiana with an Australian approach. The band have played many festivals over the years such as Port Fairy, Thredbo’s Blues, and Cobargo Polle Festival as well as being a constant in Melbourne’s top pub scene for over 1Oyrs,

Founding member Billy Abbott left Maleny 25yrs ago to further his music experience and this journey led him to establishing one of Australia’s leading Zydeco bands Crawflsh Dave. Billy was also a founding member of the Dill Allstars and wrote the hit song “Liberdade”. Billy brings with him Australia’s top Cajun Accordion player Geoff Le Blanc, virtuoso violin player Paul Jonas and a selection of Australia’s best roots music players on this tour. This music is so infectious your feet won’t stop tapping and appeals to a broad section of music lovers.
