THE HEAT IS ON!

WE'RE BACK - LEGIT !

Get those 80s tunes pumpin' for the 5th edition of the hottest show in Canada. This year, we bring you EVEN MORE hot sauce companies than ever before!
Every vendor offers free samples - and sales - of all of their amazing sauces. The sauces at Heatwave range from mild to wild ( harsh much? ) - and all of them are totally delicious.
These sauces are made by folks that know their way around a kitchen. You will taste a range of flavours that go from sweet and savoury to kick you in the teeth hot, and all made from traditional family recipes. Try some brand new flavour concoctions that will, like, absolutely mega blow your mind!
Only at Heatwave can you sample them all - before your head totally explodes from the heat ! Gnarly!

Be sure to buy some chicken wings or vegan wings to dab that tasty hot sauce on when you go around sampling.

And, of course, wash it all down with some most triumphant, ice cold brewskis - from London Brewing Co-Op of course!

A list of participating hot sauces can be found by scrolling down.

Our fan favourite spicy contests will be returning as well. Watch the action and cheer on your favourite contestants as they put it all on the line.

And if you have the mouth for it, then you should enter a contest to test your taste buds and win bodacious prizes too.

Presented by Hot Sauces Unlimited Canada's premier online hot sauce superstore.
