Most of us typically hit up Roosevelt Row for some live music or a little art ogling, but come September, RoRo will be serving up some culture of the hell-hot kind: that of the chile pepper.

From 4 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, September 29, RoRo's first Chile Pepper Festival will take place at A.R.T.S. Project #1 (408 East Roosevelt Street.) The homage to the Southwestern ingredient will feature heapin' helpin's of the Valley's best green chile dishes (plus, beer and margaritas to was them down with), a chile pepper roasting, and a free salsa sampling and salsa showdown. Local restaurants and food trucks will also be on hand with chile-fied fare.

And because it's RoRo, expect the festival to include lots of live local music and even a Chile Pepper Queen beauty/talent pageant with drag queens.

Admission to Roosevelt Row's Chile Pepper Festival is $10 in advance and $15 at the door (children under four get in free.) Admission covers entrance, live entertainment, and salsa samples. Food and beverage must be purchased separately.

Expected attendance is 3,000.

I don't care what they choose to call it.  It's a chile pepper festival, and I'm going.  The only thing that would be more alluring for me would be something called "The Bacon Parade".  Come on, people... it's a CHILE PEPPER FESTIVAL!  Lighten up, buy a ticket and have a good time.

I vote that you call it what you like and show up to support your local arts and culture district. This event, aside from being a delicious explosion of chile goodness, is also a fundraiser to do more cool stuff in Roosevelt Row and to get rid of vacant lots in downtown! So GOGO and show your support!!

Can we take a vote on this "RoRo" thing? I vote to have that name banished from Chow Bella forever.

Saw this "RoRo" thing for the first time recently, too. I'm thinking, "no-no." I do love Roosevelt Row and the Chile Festival sounds great.

I asked the same thing and was chastised for not being "with it."

"RoRo?" Fucking stupid.  It honestly made me unable to read the rest of the article.
