Hot Sauce Fest is coming to Ballard

Last summer it was burritos – now it’s hot sauce. Local event organizer The World is Fun is throwing another foodie festival, with Hot Sauce Fest taking over Ballard Commons Park on Saturday, August 18 from 11am to 10pm.

The festival is, as you may have guessed, completely focused around hot sauce. They’ll have over a dozen Northwest hot sauce companies sampling their creations, including Ballyhoo, Secret Aardvark, Fire Flower and Samfuego. At least 10 food trucks will be at the festival, including Bread Circuses, Hallava Falafel, Full Tilt, Secret Sausage, Galaxy Donuts, Nacho Mamas and more.

In addition to a plethora of food, there will be kid’s activities such as face painting and games, plus a root beer garden for the kiddos. For the over-21s, there will be a beverage garden with craft beer and cocktails including Bloody Mary’s with – obviously – hot sauce.

At the end of the day, they’ll be screening a free outdoor movie, Nacho Libre.

If you want to lend a hand, the organizers are looking for a few volunteers; click here for more info.

Nothing hotter than a hepatitis infected needle! Who needs any hot sauce?

It will go good with used syringes and tents on the sidewalk and the strong odor of urine and feces and screaming mentally ill people and burglaries and car break-ins.

Please be careful with the hot sauces and do not drop any. My fur son will lick it up and get the big sadz.

I know you’re trying to make a pet-based joke, but you actually bring up a good point. It’s probably not a good environment for dogs on Saturday, they could very easily freak out if they ingested hot sauce accidentally.

If you think my fur son is a joke, then you and I have nothing more to say to one another.

Get off this blog and walk around Ballard. You may notice it isn’t white bread Ballard anymore. Just like central district or Chinatown things change. Ballard used to be families, now its gays and more gays, latin, asian etc. & all the white people I know love hot sauce more than ketchup. If you want to practice being racist- GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT! TOOOOOO FUNNY

Yep. Rainbow flags and junkies. Crapitol Hill 2. Blech. Locusts.
Haha nothing like ruining an honest working neighborhood with generic, cookie cutter “urban cosmopolitanism”.
PS the LGBT crowd is white. Get over yourselves

The fact that you equate LGBT and junkies is interesting. It’s also a good reminder that Trumpers hate everyone who isn’t straight and white, and make no distinction between differences of any kind.

I walk in Ballard every day and see white people in bad clothing. Nothing more.

Sick of hearing bashing of the white bread insults. What race are you? My family looks like the united nations. I can tell you the black community, asian & alaska natives all at one time had their inclusive communities until big money came to Seattle. These people of color wanted to integrate into Ballard. You must remember Ballard was built by Scandinavian peoples. Hope the white bashing is from people of color, if you are white & bashing whites then you are worse off than the mentally ill addicted homeless you rage about. Our president has mental illness, and if it weren’t for these unfortunate people you would be seen as the lower one on the totem pole.
