For the past 30 years we've tortured Austinites with an outdoor celebration of Hot Sauce in the middle of the summer. COVID-19 made that impossible. But we're hoping to help out the Central Texas Food Bank and share some sauce regardless.
And like so many festivals that means going virtual. Watch some local bands perform, food experts share some recipes, and this year's judges choose the winners of the competition.
Find your way to our Facebook page around 1pm to watch the livestream.
