First Annual New York City Hot Sauce Expo 2013

April 20th – 21st, 2013. East River State Park, Brooklyn

The 1st Annual New York City Hot Sauce Expo will be a celebration of the city’s culturally diverse love of all things spicy and hot. We are really excited about what might become the biggest hot sauce show on the East Coast. We’ll be there and you should too!


As Americans steadily become more adventuresome eaters, we are now setting a place at the dinner table for hot sauce on a regular basis. Our mealtime macho has triggered a hot sauce growth spurt so great that hot sauce production has been rated one of the 10 fastest-growing industries in the U.S. and the trend shows no sign of cooling off.


The festivities start the weekend of April 20th and 21st from 10 AM to 6 PM EST at one of Brooklyn’s most renowned areas overlooking the Island of Manhattan.
