2021 PepperFest

We are so excited to reopen the gates of Shepherd Stadium to our Chili Pepper fans. We have been missing having the electric energy of our community within Shepherd Stadium, and wanted to gather everyone again for our first ever PepperFest!

Our 2021 Tri-Cities PepperFest is a FREE event, and will be held on Saturday, September 25th from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m., and continue to Sunday, September 26th from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.! The most important part of PepperFest to us is creating an exciting Chili Pepper event for the entire community to gather and experience. Can't stay the whole time? That's alright, swing by whenever just to see what we're all about!

Our PepperFest will include stadium entertainment all afternoon long, live music, food trucks, and other vendors, and of course the main event, the CASI Chili Cookoff. This will be a great opportunity to try out some incredible local drinks and food, and help send at least 2 Chili Cooks to the Terlingua International Chili Championship! We will also have our PepperShack open for this event, so if you've had a knack to get more Chili Pepper Merch, now is your opportunity!
