ABOUT THE EVENT
Espelette is a typical, historic Basque town which has a long tradition of growing chilli peppers that dates back to Christopher Columbus . The peppers are widely grown in this area and are usually harvested in mid-August; the distinctive fruit is then hung along houses to dry, forming vast garlands of red around the town. The pepper season culminates each yearon the last weekend in October at the Espelette Pepper Festival which celebrates the fruit. During the festival, you can eat the peppers in their many forms as well as enjoying all of the other culturally-distinctive Basque dancing, music and pelota games.
