Primavera Cooks: Kingfisher. Catch the last Primavera Cooks Dinner of the season at Kingfisher Bar & Grill. This is the 16th season of these dinners, in which community members and top local chefs team up to produce gourmet wine-paired dinners for their guests, who get to chow down and be charitable at the same time. Proceeds go to the programs and services of the nonprofit, which works to decrease poverty through affordable housing, job workshops and neighborhood revitalization projects. 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 17 Kingfisher Bar & Grill, 564 E Grant Road. $125.

16th Annual Roasted Chile Festival. The Rincon Institute hosts this chile and spice and everything nice event at the Rincon Valley Farmers and Artisans Market. Aside from fresh roasted chilies, locally grown produce and a beer garden, there will also be artisans and crafters, activities for kids and live music by John Grant & The Guilty Bystanders and Johnny Bencomo. Come get your metaphorical fill of local culture and your literal fill of hatch and poblano chilies. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16. Rincon Valley Farmers & Artisans Market 12500 E. Old Spanish Trail. Free entry.
