This annual chili-venerating festival has been a tradition for more than 25 years. All things pepper-related are celebrated at this unique event: sample chili-infused dishes, exotic peppers from around the globe, spicy chocolates and hot sauces. A roster of musicians from peppery regions, including Louisiana (birthplace of Tabasco) and South Korean (home of gochujang chili paste), will be playing hot tunes.
