Austin Chronicle's Hot Sauce Festival


The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival has been growing since its inception in 1990. Now the world's largest hot sauce festival, thousands of spectators and hundreds of entries make sure that the festival is at its fiery best. Local establishments show off their wares, with cookbooks, fresh peppers and souvenirs all up for sale. The Hot Sauce Festival also helps in fund raising activities, as admission is free with a three-item donation to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. Don't forget your Pepto-Bismol.
