Third weekend after Labor Day
In some places, the sight of falling leaves is synonymous with fall. In Pueblo, the savory aroma of roasting chilies signals summer’s end. Every year, thousands pay homage to Pueblo’s best-loved crop: green chilies, particularly Pueblo Chile. The event features live entertainment, street vendors, cooking competitions, and chilies, chilies, chilies! Held downtown along Union Avenue, the festival draws Pueblo residents as well as people from across the state and around the nation.
