Food, Gifts & More at the 18th Annual Chile Festival this weekend

Wake up & smell the roasted chile.

Bring your appetite to the 18th Annual Chile Festival found at the Broadway and Houghton Marketplace from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 28.

The unique bazaar was created to support local artists, crafts, and small businesses. Plus, the marketplace has always helped in raising money for the Southern Arizona Animal Food Bank.

There’s plenty happening at the festival this year, too.
