Among the fiery line up will be at least 6 World Hot Sauce Award Champion winning sauces, live music, fiery cocktails, chilli beers and a spicy smokehouse food menu, created especially for the festival.

For all the chilli heads out there, a homemade hot sauce competition will be judged by NZ’s hot sauce producers, with gold taking away prizes from Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen and Fire Dragon Chillies, and of course bragging rights.
