Caloundra’s first food festival, Ignite Chilli Festival, went off without a hitch on Saturday 25 November. Downtown Caloundra came alive with unique stalls showcasing a variety of local arts, fashion, street food, and jewellery. There was roving street theatre with mesmerising acts, live cooking demonstrations, and free taste testers that tantalised tastebuds. This ‘hot’ event was for locals and visitors alike to celebrate a fun new food festival through the love of chilli, spice, and all things nice.
