12th Annual Houston Hot Sauce Festival

Organizers for the 12th Annual Houston Hot Sauce Festival want to warn you: Eat at your own risk. The salsas, marinades, rubs, jellies and sauces you’ll find at the festival range from mild to triple-X in terms of heat. Along with plenty of food and cooking aids, pepper-themed clothes, jewelry and art will be for sale. The Zydeco Dots will provide live music, and a special Chile-dren’s area has been set aside for kids.
Sat., Sept. 15, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 16, 12-5 p.m., 2012
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
