The annual Loaf ’N Jug Chile & Frijoles Festival‚ held each year in late September‚ is Pueblo’s harvest celebration. The festival is sponsored by the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce.

Every year, thousands pay homage to two of the Pueblo area’s best loved crops – green chilies‚ particularly Pueblo chile‚ and frijoles or pinto beans.
