Update: 2021 Fiery Foods Festival Postponed
It is with great sadness to inform you that we must reschedule Columbus Fiery Foods Festival 2021 to next summer. With the resurgence of COVID-19 and the Delta variant, we cannot provide you with the type and style of event that lives up to our standards. While this was not an easy decision, it was one we felt was right for the festival. Refunds to all vendors and ticket holders will be released by Monday, August 23rd. Be on the lookout for a rescheduled date and we’ll see you in 2022!
We will refund all vendors and ticket holders by next Monday August 23rd.

The Columbus Fiery Foods Festival returns on Saturday, August 28 from 11 a.m.—8 p.m. and Sunday, August 29 from Noon—7 p.m. along the Main Street bridge in Downtown Columbus. The two-day event showcases the fiery side of life with restaurants, hot sauce makers, salsa makers, and exhibitors from around the country.

Festival-goers can expect to satisfy their need for heat by sampling everything from BBQ to salsa to sweet treats with a kick. In addition to the Fiery Foods, the festival features artisans, crafters, food trucks, and entertainment. And no Fiery Foods Festival would be complete without attendees having the opportunity to be part of the action. A variety of contests will be held throughout the weekend including, but not limited to, Hot Pizza Eating, Hot Wing Eating, and Hot Pepper Eating. Complete contest information is scheduled to be released in early August via Facebook @colsfieryfoodsfest .

General Admission for the event is $10 per person and children 12 years of age and younger are free with a paid adult admission. A special $5 General Admission ticket presale starts on July 14 at Noon and runs through August 16 or while supplies last. Tickets can be purchased online by visiting or through Eventbrite by searching Columbus Fiery Foods Festival. Once again the festival is partnering with the children’s charity CD102.5 for the Kids and a portion of the proceeds will be donated.
