What does 10 years of fiery foods look like? On October 1 and 2, walk through the doors of the Oscar Event Center, hit the floor, and find out for yourself.
Now a 3-day event - that’s right, we’ve added a special Vendor Appreciation Night! - this year’s Weekend of Fire is going to be exceptionally spicy as we look back over 10 years of flavor, sweat, and smiles. Fiery food favorites from the last 10 years will be set up throughout the festival, as vendors from our already storied past come to set up shop so you can try their wickedly hot wares. From hot sauce to BBQ sauce, to rubs, marinades, and everything in between, we’re packing the Oscar Event Center with as much heat as it can handle (and then some).
Feelin’ brave? The Arena of Fire is going to be smokin’ hot as we introduce new contests, bring back a few favorites, and truly turn the heat up as we challenge those who dare to enter the arena with the spiciest creations we can come up with.
The Weekend of Fire is an amazing place for hot sauce lovers, but there is so much more. As you go booth to booth, you’ll try many hot sauces (from mild to wild), but you’ll also find BBQ sauces, salsas, rubs, mustard, spices and even more. If the food can be hot, there is a good chance you’ll find it here.
You can purchase your favorite products right from the manufacturers! Each booth will have plenty of product on hand, so sample all you please and be sure to take some home for later. You can find some of the best deals of the year at the booths during the show.
Join us in the Arena of Fire throughout the weekend for spicy contests designed to push competitors to their limits. If you’re not brave enough to compete, be sure to stop by and cheer on the competitors as they consume some of the hottest items from the show.
Each year, you the fan will decide who walks out of the Weekend of Fire with a coveted WOFI and who must wait another year. Be sure to grab a ballot and place your votes for awards such as: Best Hot Sauce, Best Salsa, Best Booth and more. The awards will be given at the end of the day Saturday and posted online.
This family friendly show will be packed with activities for everyone. There will be face painting and balloon twisters to entertain kids of all ages. There will also be stilt walkers making their way through the crowd and more. Don’t miss the chance to experience the excitement of this show!
If the spicy samples have your mouth on fire, stop by the bar and grab a beer to cool you down. There will be special drink prices and more to keep you hydrated and ready to sample all the fiery foods you can handle.
A weekend devoted to spicy foods wouldn’t be complete without an entertainer playing with fire. Don’t miss their amazing juggling skills and other daring tricks. You may feel like you’re mouth is in flames, but watch as they literally eat fire.
