THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
We appreciate their continued support of Heating up the Capital!
Hot sauce lovers having been waiting for this a long time!!
Heating up the Capital, Ottawa’s first Hot Sauce Expo
will be taking place on Saturday, September 4, 2021
at Smokie Ridge Vineyard
10090 Cameron Road, Mountain
(15 min east of Kemptville)
There will be hot sauce makers with tons of free samples, BBQ, wood fired pizza oven, vegan options, wine and beer and ice cream to cool the fire of all the samples.
Massine’s Capital Punishment Stage will feature Hot Sauce Awards, pepper and spicy food eating challenges and other entertainment.
One of the highlights in entertainment during the Expo will be The League Of Fire’s (LOF) pepper eating challenge. The winner will be the owner of “Americas Regional Championship Belt” and will have an opportunity to challenge The League Of Fire World Pepper eating Champion and compete for The LOF World Champion Belt. Competitors for this event are coming from all over Canada and hopefully the United States.
We are anticipating 500 to 700 local and out of town visitors, all very interested in sampling sauces and getting to ‘meet the maker’.
Giving back is very important to us and this is why we have adopted Soldier On and Families of the Fallen as our charities in 2021. One dollar from every ticket sold will be donated to these two charities.
Haico’s Hot Sauce also supports these charities all year round with 15% of sales from Smoke ‘n Burn and Heat and Honey donated. To date we have donated over $1000.
We are able to be this generous only with the help of our sponsors and supporters. Providing In-Kind services allows us to keep our operating costs as low as possible. Cash sponsorships help us pay the bills.
