Houston Hot Sauce Festival History
The “Original” Houston Hot Sauce Festival, in 1999, was the brainchild of event promoter Carol Borge. Although there are many excellent fiery food events across the country, there had never before been anything like this in the Houston area. The combination of Houstonians’ love for hot and spicy food and their fondness of theme events seemed a perfect fit - organizing the festival seemed a fun and logical thing to do.

Where else can you be so “hot” and have such a great time!

Chili heads pour into the annual event - ready to sample 100’s of award winning vendor products. This hot festival is going into it’s 7th annual event. Always in September - the Houston Hot Sauce Festival is has become one of the hottest events to attend yearly. We constantly hear from fiery food “fans” looking forward to our upcoming event with plans to bring more friends and more family.

Proceeds from the Houston Hot Sauce Festival benefit The Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research. Festival Organizer, Carol is a breast cancer survivor and a Stehlin Foundation patient. After undergoing two years of successful treatment, the mother of two is living an active and healthy life.
