Promotional Event Description
Spice Things Up at the AZ Hot Sauce Expo
Arizona’s own Heartbreaking Dawns and High River Sauces proudly presents the world's most distinguished Hot Sauce event this side of the Mississippi. Get ready for the inaugural AZ Hot Sauce Expo at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Saturday, November 12th and Sunday, November 13th, 2016.
Declared the ''ingredient of the year'' by Bon Appetit, hot sauce is exploding across the United States and we plan on showcasing the best hot sauce makers to the fiery foods capitol of Arizona. The AZ Hot Sauce Expo will feature 45 artisanal Hot Sauce companies locally sourced in AZ and other cities across the United States.
Witness the action packed event with free Hot Sauce Tastings from each vendor, Eating Challenges on the main stage, Spicy Food Vendors, Cafts Beers and plenty of odd ball Entertainment Fun for the whole family!
We will also be hosting the Guinness Book of Records sanctioned Reaper Pepper Eating Challenge. How many Caroline Reaper Peppers can you eat in 60 seconds? The Guinness Book will have their official Judicator on stage to set claim and hopefully celebrate the new world record. This is the most extreme eating challenge on planet Earth.
If that's not cool enough, Stoli Vodka and the AZ Hot Sauce Expo will have the state’s only preliminary round of the Bloody Mary Mix-Down. Bartenders will compete for the ultimate bragging rights on who can make the Best Bloody Mary. The winner will be flown to NYC to compete in the Bloody Mary Mix-Down National Championship in April 2017.
