Chili and beer lovers plan to plant their fannies on Fanny Hill for the Snowmass Chili Pepper and Brew Fest, June 4-5. The Colorado ski resort’s learning slope in the winter, Fanny Hill turns into a concert venue for the summer gathering that will feature The Wailers, minus the late Bob Marley of course, and George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic.

More than 12,000 visitors are expected to attend the festival in its seventh year at the destination resort near Aspen. The attendees will have plenty of chili recipes to choose from at the various chili cook-off booths. Micro-breweries and even home brewers will be there providing liquid refreshment to quench the heat of all that chili.

Advance tickets for the event may be purchased through the festival website.
