The Pepper Festival & Hot Sauce Expo – September 14, 2019 2018-11-09T13:52:40+00:00
PEPPERS ARE

We feel that the pepper is the most versatile vegetable (it’s actually a fruit) on the planet. Peppers are enjoyed in nearly every cuisine, by nearly every ethnicity and on every continent.

The hot, the mild and the sweet – help us celebrate the fantastically diverse pepper at The Pepper Festival & Hot Sauce Expo on September 14, 2019 at the beautiful Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn, CA!

The Pepper Festival will raise awareness and much-needed funds for our partnering children’s charities (meet our charities).

LIVE MUSIC

The way we see it, the live bands playing all day are the soundtrack to the festival. Nothing but upbeat, fun music from top notch musicians. Funk, R&B, Rock, Blues and more! Featuring the amazing and fun Antsy McClain & The Trailer Park Troubadours and many more to come!
