TURNIN’ UP THE HEAT THIS SUMMER!

We couldn’t let 2021 go by without another Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo so we are very pleased to announce the Summer Market at Budweiser Gardens.
It’s just like the regular Heatwave except outside under the sun to make things even hotter and we will be subject to some covid safety protocols so we can’t get too crazy but it’s still gonna be real spicy!

At the summer edition you mingle with 35 unique producers of spicy sauces that register on the Scoville heat index from mild to extremely freakin' wild with a range of flavours that go from sweet and savory to maximum heat.
After you have collected your sauce jump over to the large outdoor patio and grab chicken wings or fried pita to dab that hot sauce on. And of course wash it all down with ice cold beverages on the licensed patio.

Stay tuned for further updates on participating vendors and entertainment.
And because eating hot sauce isn't just tasty it's also a challenge we will be announcing contests and heat eating challenges that can take place at the Summer edition. (exact roll-out of contests pending on covid guidelines, bare with us for a lil' bit, we are gonna pull off something really fun)

And of course we are the home to the Eternal Flame Hot SAuce Awards, Canada's premier award for hot sauce. This year we are not able to get the judges and plans in place to conduct the awards as per usual so this year we are calling on the fans to help us choose a winner. Stay tuned for details on how you can vote for Canada's best hot sauce.
