The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival


The long-standing Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival is back to celebrate its 32nd anniversary. Take on the heat by sampling hundreds of hot sauces, cool down with beverages, dine on local eats, relax with live music and fight hunger. 

This year's festival returns to south Austin's favorite, Far Out Lounge and Stage and requires a ticket for admission. Tickets are $10 presale, $15 at the door, with $5 going to the Food Bank to help feed families in need. Save the date for September 11 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.

Celebrate 32 years of the pepper-filled event and support our community. See you there!
