Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo’s Summer Market

Get ready for things to really heat up this summer as Budweiser Gardens welcomes the Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo’s Summer Market to its outdoor patio on August 28 & 29, 2021!

Since its inception in 2017, the Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo has been Canada’s only event that solely focuses on hot sauce worship, bringing together Canada’s top craft and elite sauce producers for a weekend of spicy fun and entertainment that will send your taste buds on a thrill ride.

The summer edition will allow patrons the opportunity to mingle with 40 unique producers of spicy sauces that register on the Scoville heat index from mild to extremely freakin' wild and tastes that range from sweet to extreme heat with each sauce having its own unique flavours that are guaranteed to make your taste buds pop. Patrons will have the chance to sample each of the sauces as they visit the booths, however, chicken wings and vegan options will be available in Bud’s Brew Garden for those who want the ultimate taste test!

The Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo is a great opportunity to sample and purchase hot sauces made from recipes that have taken their inspiration from cultures around the world. Sauces will contain everything from jalapenos to deadly scorpion peppers and combined with fruits and vegetables such as sweet potatoes, mangos, or blueberries and finished with each producer’s unique infusion of spices like garlic, chipotle and cayenne. There is a hot sauce for everyone no matter your heat tolerance or taste. With hundreds of sauces available to sample and each as uniquely different as the producers that make them, it can be hard to know where to start.  Thankfully every vendor will be happy to provide you with the culinary aspects of their sauce along with a free sample.

Heatwave Hot Sauce Expo is also the host of the Eternal Flame hot sauce awards which recognizes the best sauces in five judging categories of mild, medium, hot, extreme, and most original. Look for Eternal Flame plaques displayed at vendor booths to see which sauces won the judge's praise at past Heatwave Hot Sauce Expos.
