27th annual Chuy's Green Chili Festival
Chuy's restaurant in Raleigh is celebrating the 27th annual Green Chili Festival starting August 17. The event will run Monday, August 17 and through Sunday, September 6 at Chuy’s Raleigh, located at 4020 Market at North Hills Street in Midtown Raleigh.
You'll find a “music festival” theme celebrating the green chile harvest in Hatch, New Mexico. They are offering a special menu for a limited three week period. This year’s menu features six new dishes including Green Chile Pork Tamales, Bacon Wrapped Pork Rellenos and Veggie Fajitas. They will also feature a Frozen Watermelon Margarita, Spicy Cucumber Texas Martini and the New Mexican Martini, made with green chile infused tequila.
This year alone, Chuy’s contracted with farmers to grow over 2 million pounds of green chiles just for their restaurants. When the chiles reach their height of flavor in August, Chuy’s sends a team of restaurant managers to the Hatch Valley to bring back the finest, fresh-picked chiles for the festival.
Customers are encouraged to join in on the fun by visiting their local Chuy’s Green Chile Festival merchandise booth for festival tees, free concert ear plugs and guitar picks. They can also enter a chance to win free Chuy’s for a year by posting a picture of their favorite Green Chile Festival menu item to Instagram and tagging @chuysrestaurant with #GreenChileFest.
