Hot Sauce Festival

Mark your calendars for the 25th Annual
Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival
on Sunday, August 23rd, 2015, 12 - 5 PM.

If you wanna beat the heat this summer, then you gotta eat the heat – join The Austin Chronicle for the world's largest hot sauce festival.

The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival, which began in 1990, has become the world's largest, drawing as many as 15,000 spectators and more than 350 entries every year. This year The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival will take place on Sunday, August 24 at Fiesta Gardens (2100 Jesse E. Segovia St.) in Austin, Texas.

In the 24 years since its inception, what started out as a small contest with a few spectators has turned into one of Austin's biggest and best-known annual parties. The event is a favorite among hot and spicy food lovers from all over the country. The Hot Sauce Festival also serves as a major fundraiser for the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. Last year's Festival raised over 45,300 meals for the Austin area in a six hour period!

FREE to the public (with a donation of three healthy, nonperishable food items or a suggested $5 cash donation to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas), the event draws upward of 15,000 spectators and more than 350 entries every year.
