Get Your Chile Pepper on at the BBG

We've noted it before, but we'll note again after getting an email from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden that their 15th Annual Chile Pepper Fiesta will take place on Sunday, Sept. 30 from Noon-6PM. we've been to the festival a couple of time, and it can be a bit crowded under the tent where the food is being served and the entertainers are performing, but it's an otherwise fun reason to visit the BBG, which is always a wonderful place to spend some relaxing time. Here's what our friends at the BBG said about it in the email they sent:
It's an absolutely delightful event designed to celebrate the chile plant as it is used in cultures all over the world, from the Caribbean to Asia to South & Central America and Mexico. Positively chock full of music, dance, and culinary adventures inspired by these cultures-- this year's lineup includes duo Ringold & Ellis performing fiery feats of flame (including the famous "fire umbrella"-- woot!), Peruvian dance from Ballet Folklorico Peru, hot Caribbean rhythms from Sesame Flyers Steel Pan Orchestra, the borough's own Brooklyn Petro hot sauce makers whipping up a batch of their spicy manna, Latin/Jewish fusion cooking from the Brooklyn ladies of the Post Punk Kitchen and much more.
The full schedule is available here.
