The 2013 Houston Hot Sauce Festival takes place on Saturday, September 21 from 11 a.m.–6 p.m. and on Sunday, September 22 from 12–5 p.m. Exhibitors come from across the country, bringing along hundreds of spicy goods such as hot sauces, dips, and salsas. Attendees can sample the creations of companies such as Austin Slow Burn, CaJohns from Columbus, OH, and Mild to Wild from Fort Wayne, IN..

Meanwhile, live musicians play country, rock, blues, and jazz. On Saturday, a children’s area hosts a “Hula Hoopin’” contest and performances from Thomas Wood, a fire-eater and pyro juggler. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Snowdrop Foundation, which raises money for pediatric cancer patients.

Houston Hot Sauce Festival

In Houston, September beats out July and August for the hottest month of the year—it has nothing to do with the weather, however. The culprit behind the elevated heat level is the Houston Hot Sauce Festival. This annual event brings together exhibitors from across the country to sell and hand out samples of their signature hot sauces, salsas, jams, dips, and other spicy foods. Luckily, vendors also supply plenty of cool beverages, thus eliminating the need for bite-size fire extinguishers.

Live entertainment complements the spicy goods. Blues artists, jazz bands, and other musician play throughout the festival, and each day brings special events, such as salsa eating competitions or fire eating performances.
