What began as a small hot sauce contest in 1990 has grown into the largest competition of its kind and one of Austin’s largest and best-known annual food events, drawing as many as 10,000 spectators and over 350 entries each year.

Hundreds of gallons of hot sauce are consumed and beverages are on hand to cool off the overheated. In addition to the hot sauce competition, this truly Austin food event features tastings from local restaurants, culinary demonstrations, sauces for sale, cookbooks, peppers and more, and of course live music. Past performers include Sour Bridges, Joe King Carrasco, A. Sinclair, Dale Watson, Latasha Lee & the Blackties, Money Chicha, Crooks, Shinyribs, and more.
