The Grande Chile Festival on September 21 from 9am – 3pm will be held at the Rincon Valley Farmers and Artisans Market in Vail, which has been serving freshly roasted chiles since 2001. A true celebration of all things chile, the Festival will be abundant with different varieties of roasted chiles and chile-infused specialties from some of the best farmers and food purveyors in town. To add to the fun, the Festival will feature an all-day live music lineup of local talent like Cadillac Mountain, Southbound Pilot, Roman Barten-Sherman, Rudy Cortes, and Damon McLaughlin; a Family Fun Hub featuring a petting zoo and pony rides; and beer and margarita garden to cool the fiery flame. The free veggie valet is the perfect place for shoppers to keep their local veggies fresh as they explore antique row, learn how to cook with chiles at the Taste of the Market booth, and enjoy family-friendly activities provided by Saguaro Park East, the Vail Preservation Society, and the Vail Chamber of Commerce.
