"Peace, Love and Peppers." That's the theme for the 2009 Ninth Annual Houston Hot Sauce Festival being held this weekend, Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20 at the Stafford Centre - about a mile and a half south of Hwy 59 on Wilcrest.
Presented by Miller Lite and a host of other local sponsors, the festival brings you "hundreds of award winning hot sauce, salsa, chips, dips, peppers, spices, jams/jellies, marinades, rubs, wing sauce, and more." Vendors from all over Texas and from as far away as Ohio, Maryland and California gather to showcase their secret recipes that promise to light your lips on fire!
Live music headlined by bands like Cattle Prod, Willie B. And The Silver Backs and The Zydeco Dots will keep the place rocking!
Feel free to bring the kids. Those under 12 get free admission and there's even a children's area with such free activities as face painting and moonwalks!
A $5 adult-ticket gets you all-day admission and free samples of all the good stuff. "Sample the items before you buy - there's never a charge for sampling."
The vendors will have plenty on hand to sell to the hungry public, but get there early because the best stuff sells out quickly!
