Fire on the Mountain

The Fire on the Mountain Chili Fest will bring the heat to Pats Peak in Henniker on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is $12.

Feeling a little chili these days? If so, Pats Peak has the perfect event for you. Their annual "Fire on The Mountain" Chili Fest invites you to take the Henniker Chili Challenge. Local restaurants face off in the professional chili-making category, while dedicated home chefs from New Hampshire and beyond go toe-to-toe for best amateur chili chef. You get to sample as many of the nearly 40 chilies as you can throughout the afternoon (and cast your Peoples’ Choice award vote) while enjoying the fest’s other offerings, including: Car Cruise In, KidZone, the Dave Chiasson Band in the Music Tent, Vendor fair featuring more than 20 specialty food and craft purveyors and, new this year: the Hot Pepper Eating Contest (for the bravest among you).
