In the twenty-two years since its inception, what started as a friendly contest between Austin and San Antonio has become one of the largest annual contests in the world, the Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival. Free to the public (with a donation of three healthy, non-perishable food items or a cash donation to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas), the event draws upwards of 15,000 spectators and more than 350 entries every year. 

The Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival is presented in conjunction with the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas (CAFB), and last year raised over $17,000 and almost 19,000 pounds of food for Central Texans in need.

The 2012 Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival will take place on Sunday, August 26 at Fiesta Gardens from 11:00am – 5:30pm.
