Pueblo Chile Festival

Category: Festivals & Amusement Parks Last Updated: Monday, 04 May 2015


The Pueblo Chile & Frijoles Festival in Southeast Colorado is guaranteed to burn your eyes with fun! Besides being overcome with tears in the chili roasting area, you will find a diverse selection of music and dance performances as well as local vendors.

 The Pueblo Chile festival is a fun thing to do in southern Colorado in September, and attracts chile lovers from all over Colorado and New Mexico. The farmer's market is one of the best I've seen, and features a diverse selection of farm products including plenty of chiles of all types.

The festival has changed over the years and now fences off a large portion of downtown Pueblo and charges a $2 per person admission fee.

Note:  Unfortunately FreeInDenver.com can no longer recommend this festival due to their new admission fee and the fact that their web site makes it very difficult to learn about the fee. They boast that their festival attendance hasn't dropped with the new fee, but no one knows about the fee until they make the drive down there and find out the hard way! You've been warned...

When: The event is held every year near the end of September.

Downtown Pueblo, Colorado on Union Ave between 1st and B-Streets.
