Datil Pepper Festival (St. Augustine, FL)
October 3, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Every year Saint Augustine gathers to celebrate the Datil Pepper with professional chefs vying for recognition by creating dishes of all kinds using Datils as a primary ingredient. Visitors to the Festival purchase Tasting Coupons and then visit each booth with a judging sheet to determine the People’s Choice Awards. Professional judges also rate the offerings for another set of awards and bragging rights for the coming year.
Hundreds of years ago, immigrants brought the seeds for a unique and very hot pepper known as the Datil Pepper. In St. Augustine, we celebrate that culture and that pepper with a festival dedicated to exploring its potential.
