North Market Fiery Foods Festival
It's February and we’re getting a bit antsy to end our winter hibernation and start getting out again. I'm here with just the remedy to warm you up - the North Market Fiery Foods Festival , Feb. 19-20.

This family-friendly weekend features a little of everything spicy. On the first day of the festival, things kick off with an amateur guacamole contest and face painting. Things really heat up from there with the Chef Chili Challenge, followed by the amateur chili contest and fiery cornbread and jalapeno eating contests.

Day two will continue the spiciness with a Fiery Foods Brunch, Chili Pepper Art Contest judging, hot sauce competition, salsa competition, hot sundaes and hot wing eating contests.

Also available throughout the weekend will be the usual fare from your favorite North Market merchants . And you can come see what I’ll personally be serving up on Saturday at the guacamole and Chef Chili Challenge contests.
