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.
