Sponsorship Levels

The Texas Hot Sauce Festival celebrates, brings together, and serves up the endless combinations of spice, flavor, and heat that lift Southwest cuisine on angel wings! This year we’re celebrating 20 years of serving hot sauce, salsa, chips, dips, peppers, spices, marinades, rubs, jams/jelly, pickled products, condiments, soup mixes, chili mixes, wing sauces; chunky, spicy, smooth, garlicky, sweet, fruity, peppery, smoky, from hot to mild to REALLY HOT!

Thousands of attendees sample 100s of products from award winning chefs and vendors from as far away as California, Arizona, Ohio, Louisiana, and Florida.  While hot sauce and the food that goes with it the best are the main focus, there will be plenty of other food for all tastes, with a variety and quality fitting for Houston’s diverse population and “Foodie” culture, and there will be plenty of cold drinks to cool the heat. Continuous live music provides the soundtrack of good times with great food and friends with specialty entertainment acts and contests.  The “Chile-dren’s Area” provides fun for the mini chileheads, while Arts & Crafts vendors offer unique souvenirs and complete the festival atmosphere in the beautiful and conveniently located Bayou City Event Center. 

 Sponsors will be able to take advantage of the huge promotional impact of this festival with countless impressions across all media and all markets, with national and international media outreach. After 20 years, the Texas Hot Sauce Festival is, indeed, “Hotter Than Ever,” with new ownership and a proven production and promotion team committed to respecting this loved event’s vision and tradition while growing into the future. This is now a proven event for which people are already excited and looking forward to continued growth. Sponsorship will provide access to thousands of patrons and over $100,000 worth of promotional impressions. Sponsors will also be closely associated in the public mind with a wildly popular event that appeals across all markets to everyone who enjoys a good time and great food. Patrons are excited to come back, and appreciate the sponsors who support it.

Sponsorship of the Texas Hot Sauce Festival is available at different levels, depending on the sponsorship investment and providing different levels of promotion and media exposure. The Texas Hot Sauce Festival can work with you to fit your company’s needs and goals.

Part of the proceeds benefit the Snowdrop Foundation, which funds research to eliminate childhood cancer and provides scholarships for pediatric cancer patients and survivors.
