The fifth annual Ignacio Chamber of Commerce Green Chile Fest will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at Farmers Fresh Market, 535 Goddard Ave., Ignacio.

Music will be performed by Tyller Gummersall and Kate Willyard. There will be a circus performance by the Secret Circus Society, chile roasting, vendors and a beer garden hosted by Bottom Shelf Brewery and Wells Liquor South.

“I am so excited that we have the circus coming to Ignacio, and amazing live music and green chile,” said Sharon Craig, an event organizer, in a message to The Durango Herald. “I think it will be an awesome day in Ignacio.”
